FLEE is an independent publishing house, record label and curatorial platform dedicated to the documentation and artistic reinterpretation of hybrid cultural phenomena. Defending a transdisciplinary practice, the platform explores and creatively highlights the contours of globalization from a historical and critical perspective. Oscillating between different subjects and disciplines, from music to architecture, the collective pursues an inclusive working method, privileging diverse and varied points of view.
Extra Muros – Switzerland is the result of the third edition of FLEE’s creative residency program which took place in December 2021 in the Museum of Ethnography of Geneva.
For two weeks, five musicians and producers from all over the world came together to experiment on new sounds. Within the centre for creation and archiving of the Geneva-based museum, the residency allowed participating artists to discover one of Europe’s largest sonic archives dedicated to field recordings and regrouping over 120.000 entries.
In addition, the selected artists had a rare occasion to experiment on traditional instruments as well as contribute to the creation of a new unique sonic database.
Olivier Duport, founder of FLEE, will present the latest releases of the label as a musical performance.
