Ayumi Pauls “Sounding Seeds” for the Beginning of Summer
To get us in the mood for autumn, this year’s In House: Artist in Residence, Ayumi Paul, has developed a new sound work for her series of sound pieces created in attunement with the solstices and equinoxes of the year. Sounding Seeds is a sonic journey – embedded in breathing and vocal exercises – through the spheres that inspire Ayumi Paul’s The Singing Project. Following the rhythm of the earth’s yearly cycle around the sun, Sounding Seeds explores the myriad ways in how sound and song have been shaping our world.

The Singing Project
In House: Artist in Residence 2022
A violinist, composer and artist, Ayumi Paul’s work is anchored in a practice of listening. Her art departs from the intersections of sound, composition, and perception. As part of her residency at the Gropius Bau, Paul presents her participatory singing sculpture The Singing Project. The project unfolds through a series of workshop and as an open-ended practice that anyone can take back with them and activate anywhere, anytime. The Singing Project is one key materialisation of the Gropius Bau’s focus on practices of caring, repairing and healing.
