SHOUTING - Aarhus & New York & Brussels

intervention for 3 voice in crowded areas

acoustic intervention in crowded public spaces
for three voice performers

The performers enter a public space and accumulate shouting, whistles and other common acoustic signals. These appear first only incidentally and develop into an acoustic intervention that cannot be ignored.

The development of the original composition (mainly a well organized accumulation) was changed for Grand Central/NYC and for Penn Station/NYC due to the circumstances of the space and the amount of performers. The actions here are merely singular and and follow less strict a time-line.

emphasis of incidental sounds in a public noise field; unconscious differentiation of signals and random sounds; understanding the public space as a performative space; the personal message versus a public communication"; a conceptual composition with a social dimension
