takemeto
installation and performance
2010



The installation "takemeto" is played by plugging and pulling the plugs. Then sound layer by sound layer is added trough the use of microphones amplifying the sound of the installation trough a sound system. Chinese megaphones with loop function are used to record the sound and are placed at certain positions in the room where they repeat their distorted recording. Mass produced education records are played to finally reach the culmination of the more and more noisy getting sound scape until layer by layer is slowly built back.

spooning.melange
variable sound-performance
2009


“spooning.melange” is an experimental performance setup combing two essential human social activities: eating and making music.

Spoons, dishes, glasses and bodies of the participants are wired and connected through a micro controller with a computer, running a special designed sound controlling program in Max/Msp.

Each participants can trigger and modulate an individual sound through his eating process. Focusing on the eating part, the acoustic part or both leads to different outcomes of this abstract interactive performance.
The technical setup is a flexible tool and was used for a theatrical performance to playback and reverse text phrases within a fixed dramaturgy. “spooning.melange” will be continuously developed and altered for new projects.
