GABRIELA invites you to call +30 2130 261436 and listen to a sound piece by Weronika Trojanska, I am sitting in a room (1969) I am sitting in a room (2019). The service is available 24 hours, 7 days a week.

50 years ago Alvin Lucier, the American composer, one of the key figures of experimental music, first recorded his groundbreaking composition “I am sitting in a room” (conceived for voice and electromagnetic tape), in which he tells the audience what he is doing and what they will hear. As he explains, recorded voice is played back several times until the resonant frequencies of the room start to dominate the speech, erasing at the end the human component towards dominance of the pure, environmental sound. What would happen if the focus was only on the spoken words, the voice and the resonance and acoustic of performer’s own body (throat, chest and diaphragm)? How the idiosyncratic and uncontrollable activities and sounds it produces can be transformed into music? Thinking of “I am sitting in a room” as of a song or a choreography, “any irregularities […] speech might have” become notations or gestures, the integral part its score.

GABRIELA Communication Department will host sound pieces and messages by invited artists during the following months.

Hold the line.

Weronika Trojanska received her MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan, Poland and Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam. In her artistic practice she investigates the notions of auto/biography and the self, by inhabiting gestures (reproducing, adapting and learning) of other artists, as a way to evoke their and her personality, and thus to construct her polyphonic autobiography. Her work has been presented at the Museum of Modern Art (NYC), Emily Harvey Foundation (NYC), Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space (NYC), Printed Matter Inc. (NYC), Rongwrong in Amsterdam (the Netherlands), NEW STUDIO in collaboration with 3 137, Athens (Greece), MuzeuMM, Los Angeles (CA), and Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore (ICAS), among others. Trojanska is also an active art writer. She publishes in a number of Polish and English-speaking media.
