29 June Pia Palme | THE BIG WITH
a performative ecology with voice, bass recorder, electronics, video, paper

Consider the old hall: it sounds by itself. In my performance, it is my living collaborator. I ask for their permission. It is alive and speaks WITH me. It allows me to project my video onto its surface. The hall performs WITH my instrument, reflecting, resonating, masking sound waves. My voice is WITH the floor, crawling into the basement. No, this is (not) another kind of animism, it is purely scientific thinking. My breath enters my instrument, flows through the big tube and exits through holes and openings. Softly, my sounding breath touches the walls, the columns, and moves up towards the glass ceiling. I listen to its history. We bow to each other.

I will also be part of the discussion panel.
