Sound Stage

The work functions to supplement a live performance through prepared seating.

Ten chairs are placed on wheels and each fitted with a loudspeaker. These are connected to the live presentation of sound by a performing artist. In addition, live-motion-tracking is used to process the sound in real-time, presenting an altered version of the performance. The work is a live appropriation and parasitic modification of the “concert”, allowing visitors to participate and alter the performance: by using the chairs, visitors reshape the listening experience, changing and relocating the sounds by their movements.

In collaboration with Ken Ehrlich & Mark Schreiber.

Performed at FA Projects, London
