Athens – Waiting for something to happen…

My final presentation for Sound Development City 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.

Later at Synergy-o Art Complex, a hundred ping-pong balls were dropped down the stairwell in an ephemeral gesture.
