for objects and live processing
29. 3. 2006 MIBEM Festival
Found objects from Australian urban and rural landscapes (dried twigs, cones, plant seeds, little bottles, a stanzed metall sheet, squashed and corroded cans,
bottle tops etc.) were placed on a table. One by one, they were made to sound by being 'played' (i.e. touched, scratched, moved close to etc.) with a miniature microphone.
The sounds were processed in realtime. A camera recorded the movements of the performer, and this data also transformed the sounds electronically. Crisp becomes a miniature
'table theatre', with the amplified sounds projecting into the large performance space.
Berlin sound artist Kirsten Reese's contribution was a short piece in which she sat at a
table gently touching a variety of very closely miked glasses, bowls and other
everyday objects. These sounds were processed via a laptop using morphing and
delay to layer the sound. The work makes the most of a brilliant PA that can convey
every nuance of even the lightest fingering of an object, creating a haunting intimacy
that negates the physical distance between listener and performer and makes music
out of the ordinary.
