My final presentation for a Sound Development City project in Athens. The audience was blindfolded and guided through the city to Fabrica Theatre, where the presentation was to take place.
The form developed naturally. A set of stereo speakers was playing recordings from Balkans, which gradually faded from one to another, creating an immersive sound environment. An additional mobile loudspeaker provided a narrative element. This could be carried anywhere from the back of the stage, to right next to the listeners’ ears. The changing distance created a physical third-dimension. The content gave participants threads for potential stories.
Back at Synergy-o Art Complex, a hundred ping-pong balls were dropped down the stairwell in an ephemeral gesture concluding the three weeks spent together.
