Dada Sounds – 100 Years of DADA/February 5, 2016/online project

February 5, 2016 marks 100 years since the founding of the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich, and thus the beginning of Dada.

To mark the occasion, Cities and Memory: Dada Sounds marks a century of Dadaism by applying the techniques and practices of Dada to field recordings from around the world, bringing a Dadaist approach to the concepts of sound, place and memory and creating a new, Dada-inspired sound world.

The project features:

  • 28 countries, taking in everywhere from Iceland and Canada and from India to Vietnam.
  • Iconic Dada locations including Berlin, Paris and the very doorstep of the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich.
  • 77 sound artists, musicians and field recordists taking part from across the world, each bringing their own interpretation to the project.

The sounds use a huge range of Dada-inspired techniques to reimagine the sounds, from collage and abstraction to sound poetry and pieces based around the lives and experiences of some of the key figures of Dada.
