‘Fieldlines’ is an immersive residency taking place in the week running up to the festival at Alsisar Mahal. International and Indian sound artists will live and work together, alongside traditional folk musicians from the region. Together with a filmmaker and cultural translator, collaborative content will be developed that serves to highlight and conserve traditional instruments and playing styles.
In addition to artistic exchange, it is the social interaction in Rajasthan, the shared experience of food, architecture, nature and local traditions, which will be felt in the live presentation on stage. During Magnetic Fields, the project studio will be transformed into a live installation that festival goers can interact with and in which improvised jams and performances will take place. Fieldlines is a project made possible by the Goethe-Institut’s International Coproduction Fund and is realised in collaboration with Gebrüder Teichmann and their label Noland. Other artists to be announced soon.
This is an exclusive MF commission that will debut at Magnetic Fields Festival 2019.
