HEAR

2018

 

In January 2018 the performance was staged for the second time, this time under the name HEAR, in front of a live audience at a public venue. In an accompanying text the audience was motivated to interact with the performers and talk to them. When none of the two artists were altering the settings on the effect pedals, the setup operated as an autonomous sound installation.The title references the first iteration and puts an emphasis on the individual experience of every attendee of the concert.

The whole concert including the voices and sounds emitted by the audience was recorded and published on Bandcamp.

In order to give weight to the presence of the audience, all tracks on the album are named after hearable sounds they contain, which do not stem from the computer or the two artists, like the accidental ringing of a cellphone or snippets of a conversation.
