Taking off from Pauline Oliveros’ Apple Box approach, a resonant object (to be found in the streets) will act as an instrument. Together with its contact microphones it functions as a filter and amplifier for the sounds coaxed from its resonant body, to then altered and spatialized.
The premiere 2018 was part of a two-year exchange project, WIL(HELMS | LIAMS)BURG, in which 8 artists from both sides of the Atlantic (Xiao Fu, Georg Hajdu, Jacob Sello, Carlos Andres Rico, Dafna Naphtali, Howie Kenty, Maria Chavez and me) created works relating to the common history between Hamburg/Wilhelmsburg and Brooklyn/Williamsburg (http://w-burg.com). This project was supported by Behörde für Kultur und Medien Hamburg and Hamburgische Kulturstiftung.
