AN ORCHESTRATION OF THE UNKNOWN
2019 l berlin.alerta
live sound installation in collaboration with wissam sader and 9 distant performers
as an electronic poem to leave to the space left for bats and other nocturnal animals before being destroyed and transformed into luxury offices/appartements,
relying on GSM entanglements, a time based performance is created for 15 minutes, in which stories and private words come up, melt in a cloud of words, creating an improvised piece, spatialized in the space in which nobody knows what happens, but they all are willing to play the game.
- 2 moderators running the plateform: answering calls, placing and moving the phones in the space
- 2 analog timers
- 9 distant performers
- 9 call devices (mostly are borrowed from the audience)
- 6 metal pieces for sound amplification
protocol for each performer
