Green line

Pablo Sanz for Süden Radio 2017

SONORA

Green Line has been shortlisted in the context of the Süden Radio open call for soundworks.

Green line is recorded in East Jerusalem on January 9, 2012 during sunset in a spot at the City of David, facing the Arab village of Silwan, in the outskirts of the Old City. With a predominantly Palestinian population, nowadays Silwan is under Israeli jurisdiction. Regarded as a major archeological site, this area is situated just at the East side of the 1949 Armistice Demarcation Line (Green Line). The international community considers Israeli annexation of East Jerusalem as illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.

The piece was my contribution to the compilation Somewhere on the Edge, 100th release by label Gruenrekorder in Germany. The piece is also part of an unpublished compilation of pieces based on several weeks of field work in Jerusalem and its surroundings in early 2012.


Pablo Sanz is an artist, composer and sound recordist currently based in UK and Portugal. He makes site-specific projects, multichannel installations, immersive sonic-spatial live performances and sound pieces for headphone listening. His activities are engaged with the act of listening and the exploration of aesthetic and spatial aspects of sonic perception. He works primarily with environmental sound as raw material, extended listening technologies, architectural physical space and spatial audio strategies. Thresholds of human perception and the interrelations between non-humans, matter and phenomena are essential in his practice.

Recent projects include field recording work in the Central Amazon region supported by Brazilian and British research organisations, site-specific architectural interventions in The Netherlands, Spain and Northern Ireland, radio commissions for Radio Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid, FON Air UK, Atelier de Création Sonore Radiophonique / Silence Radio in Belgium and online releases on Very Quiet Records (UK) and Sonic Terrain (Colombia) among others.

In 2004 he became an active member of the online publication mediateletipos.net, a collaborative independent initiative devoted to the dissemination of aural culture and sonic arts through which he contributed to several curatorial projects including commissioned programmes for Sónar Festival (Barcelona) and Sensxperiment (Córdoba). In 2007 he relocated to The Netherlands, completing studies at the Institute of Sonology and the ArtScience Interfaculty in the Royal Conservatory and the Royal Academy of Arts of The Hague. Since 2013 he is engaged with the Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC), where he works towards a practice-based PhD (Sound~Space~Perception: Environmental Composition Approaches).
