DEEP SOUND OPERA, Act 8
Saturday Night, 03:30 h
droehn is an audiovisual live-performance that explores tensions between autonomy and loss of control through sound, bodily gestures and language, through physical and digital space. A bass guitar is used as echo chamber and sound generator, creating low frequency drones and noisy textures that warp time and space. Fragments of spoken word appear, get submerged into the drain. The visuals reflect words back into themselves, a screen meditating on its own pixels. The drone speaks for and from itself, from the given circumstances. Not everything that happens is under control.
