In this new experimental sound-light performance Vito Willems and Bin Koh will deconstruct the human voice and reconstruct it with various algorithmic software processes into a physical light-sound experience. By questioning other forms of communication, and challenging how the paralinguistic quality of human and non-human can be conveyed by the voice and translated into objects, this performance will trigger you on various sensory levels.
Part of the performance is based on the work Noema, which premiered at Sónar+D in Barcelona earlier this year. Using computational technology as a medium, Noema explored the multidimensionality in which sound can be presented; physical, visual and spatial dimensions cohered as an entity.
