Play Babel
Sound Performance, 37’45” – 2011
Sound walk produced during the residence Media Sculpture with Radio Orange (Wien, AT).
Translation, between words and gestures, is an attempt of communication, like a displacement from one context to another. When the verbal dimension is mysterious and
a territory of misunderstandings, sound can become a kind of guide. In this project, a group of listeners connected to the radio via mobile phones is invited to follow the instructions from the radio show, thus becoming performers in the public space of the Viennese Brunnenermakt. Public space becomes the context of the play; soundscapes become the elsewhere in the present, and listening the join to the creation of a liquid communication.
