audio-visual performance

Different sounds and shapes of paper are central elements for the audiovisual performance: The behaviour of unfolding, bouncing, rolling or sliding paper is staged in a spatial setting. For „PAPER“ no other sounds than original paper sounds are used to create musical stuctures. Some are used to generate more subtle elements or alter filters but most of them are left unchanged. The composition uses sound not only as a time-based medium but also as a spatial narrative. Whereby, amongst other things, the audience gets the chance to make reference between a single sound and its visual origin.

Categorized through different weights of papers the program is devided into six parts. The concert is approx. 40 min long. It is planned as a three channel projection (with 5.1 audio), but can also be played as single channel projection, but with at least three front audio channels and one audio channel behind the audience (4.1). When using one screen: Minimum of 5m width required to get a good spatial separation of sound and video objects.
