Text

In this experimental sound-light performance the deconstruction of the human voice and reconstruction by various algorithmic software processes constitutes a physical light-sound experience. By questioning other forms of communication, and challenging how the paralinguistic quality of human and non-human can be conveyed by the voice, this performance composes a personal narrative transformed into a multisensory performance.

Part of the performance is based on the work Noema, which premiered at Sónar+D in Barcelona earlier this year. Using computational technology as a medium, Noema explored the multidimensionality in which sound can be presented; physical objects, visual appearances and spatial dimensions cohered as a unified form.
