Harvestworks is pleased to partner with the Institute for Public Architecture to present an experimental audio visual performance by Sofy Yuditskaya, Monica Rocha, Johannes Sistermanns and Hans Tammen who come together for the sake of the sound and the silences in between the sounds. It is about architecture and how we relate to it and each other within it.

Using the Block Building #9 on Governors Island as a musical instrument, the artists will activate the first floor room and explore how they relate to it and each other within it. It’s about listening and being present in the moment. Friction is a cue to listen more deeply. We don’t always want to know the motivations behind every move. And yet: we are curious about what provokes each action, each sound, sculpture, body surrounding emptiness. Breaking out of it, like a crash, falling back into silence, unmoving. Network, intensity, authenticity, simple frame, noise, listening floors… time is too short for us to break off after 45 minutes. EnTsemble always meets again, somewhere else, hearing grass grow.


Sofy Yuditskaya is a site-specific media artist and educator working with sound, video, interactivity, projections, code, paper, and salvaged material. Monica Rocha is an artist who works in photography, performance, and sound. Johannes Sistermanns stages his compositions as media/electroacoustic performances, soundplastic, radioart, music theatre and urban environment. Hans Tammen is just another worker in rhythms, frequencies and intensities, and likes to set sounds in motion, then sitting back to watch the movements unfold.

The Institute for Public Architecture uses design to challenge social and physical inequities in the city.We address urgent issues of design and policy by mobilizing our network of activists, professionals, government officials and community stakeholders. The IPA’s collaborative process involves a focused design residency and related programs.
