Playground N

5min excerpt of 20min performance at klingt gut! HAW Hamburg 15.05.2021

Opening performance concert 1.2.2022 at Galerie der HBK Braunschweig full recording 20min:


Playground N is a sono-choreographic environment in which the Sono-Choreographic Collective´s  family of custom-made electromagnetic and acoustic spin-tops are variously tuned and played to continuously hold a spin. Here sonified gravity and voice are spatialised, while a live-video feed closely observes the tactile and kinetic behaviors of the instruments and their instrumentalists. The resulting audio-visual-textual polyphony makes for a hybrid between a musical performance and lecture, that manifests both as a performance of the sono-choreographic process, and often also as an installation of the performance.
