BA – Unrated

Whether it refers to a stage when the subject of a ratification process hasn’t been allocated to any official classification yet, or a permanent position of actively rejecting tags and categorization, the term ‘unrated’ is associated with a sense of exteriority. The Hungarian-Slovak collective BA – Unrated (Besorolás Alatt) aims to operate in such an unrated territory and find inspiration through experimenting with electro-acoustic music, field-recordings; separating and re-joining layers of sounds with the use of feedback loops and online streaming. BA – Unrated (Besorolás Alatt) is the ongoing cooperation of András Blazsek, Maté Kiss, Imrich Kovács, Csilla Nagy, Gergő Nagy, Lívia Nolasco-Rózsás, Zoltán Pethő, Attila Zérczi.

Lands End (2013)

In Lands End "home is displayed as an estranged, scenic landscape, as an interior and a cultivated garden at the same time: a place once left, a place waiting for its reoccupation, a place of one’s own at the end of the world." (Nolasco-Rózsás)

The film was inspired by Stanislaw Lem’s Return from the Stars (1961).

Commissioned for the Biennale JCE — Jeune Création Européenne, Edition 2013-2015.
Installation view at the Bonnefantenmuseum Maastricht.

Vertical Acoustics (2017)

with Emily Verla Bovino @ Residency Unlimited, Brooklyn, NY

Performative lecture by artist and art historian Emily Verla Bovino about collaborative archaeoacoustic research on a cross-country drive from San Diego to New York.

Driving from the West to the East Coast of the US, we visited sites and gathered field recordings at Chaco Canyon in New Mexico, Spiro Mounds in Oklahoma, Angel Mounds in Indiana and the Serpent Mound (visited by artist Robert Smithson) in Ohio. The sounds of these sites were incorporated into a performative lecture that took place after the performance at the Residency Unlimited in 2017.
