Between January 17th and 21st, 2022, I took part in the Acoustic Interiors project in The Hague, Netherlands
The topic and medium of this project is actually an area that I have paid very little attention to and have never worked on as an independent discipline. For me, sound has always been associated with my video work and I have not treated as an independent medium until now. This was partly due to my irreparable hearing damage. However I was up to try something new and to experiment with the medium sound.
Participation in this project led me to the decision to continue working with the medium of sound, at least for a longer period of time. To experiment with it and to find out if this medium is suitable for me. In short, if I can develop further in this discipline andif it adds something new to my future work.
I had planned first to perform my performance with audio elements "Dialogue" which is based on a totally different concept. However when I saw the building for the first time in the morning I changed my idea and concept for my performance in the afternoon. For two reasons first the opportunities the building offers, the second was the performance I had planned would be very difficult to present in this building. Finally I decided to go into a dialogue with the building by creating sound and noise elements which became elementary part within in the performance
Dialog is my first solo live performance which used audio elements. First performed on March 12, 2022 at Soro-SorO#1 at De Bouwput, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Curator Mariko Hori. Soro-sorO#1 was actually conceived as an experimental field. This performance is a hybrid work that also integrates sound and noise. Actually it should be a life performance with audiovisual elements. But in the end I decided to leave out the visual part. Dialogue has several meanings at the same time. One of the meanings is based on personal experience. A) A dialogue that leads to no result B) A dialogue without content, ramblings without substance C) About the voices that I hear in my head and my hearing loss that sometimes prevents me from following a dialogue. Nevertheless, for me all three meanings are connected.
