Drone piece and installation in bethlehem
Posted on Sun, 23 Jun 2019

For Dar Jacir's inaugural exhibition on the 21st of June, Nicolás installed a 6 meter water pipe from Hebron that broadcasts the resonant frequency of the Jacir Studio mixed with the natural droning of the pipe. This frequency was mixed with the live amplification of the naturally occurring droning of the pipe. The piece is entitled "Echorot". Other artists in the exhibit include Ayed Arafah, Duncan Campbell, Sam Durant, Jumana Manna, Tai Pomara, Mohammed Saleh and Vivien Sansour.

New Sound Residency curated by Nicolás Jaar
Posted on Fri, 21 Jun 2019

The first resident of the new Dar Jacir Studio is chilean sound artist and composer Sebastian Jatz Rawicz. From the press release: When Sebastián first entered the small square building made of stones in Dar Jacir´s garden, he perceived it as a sacred structure, a hiding place from which listening would be possible without being seen. A protected place for silence and contemplation. A place of geographical convergence, where the wind rises perfectly towards the four walls. In order to bring his experience back to Santiago, Sebastián decided to create a narrative of the Sound Studio building, tracing its coordinates through sounds and voice recordings. An archive of the work created in the studio is in the works via Other People
