MUSIC FOR THREE SOLO PERFORMERS. Fragment of the performance (2008)

The live performance "MUSIC FOR THREE SOLO PERFORMERS" is based on the interactive sound installation "SOUNDANISM" ("SONANISMO", in the Spanish version, see related video in Youtube). Three persons from the audience volunteered for going on stage, put on one mask connected to a small microphone, and breath. The DissoNoiSex group, placed behind the audience, received this sound signal and processed it in real time during the performance. The resulting sound was projected through six loudspeakers.

'Music for three solo performers' presents itself as half chance/half controlled composition.

Excerpt from the performance of DissoNoiSex (Asia Piascik, Stefan Kersten and Miguel Alvarez-Fernandez) at the Neues Kunstforum, Cologne, the 10th November 2007.

The live performance "MUSIC FOR THREE SOLO PERFORMERS" is based on the interactive sound installation "SOUNDANISM" ("SONANISMO", in the Spanish version, see related video in Youtube). Three persons from the audience volunteered for going on stage, put on one mask connected to a small microphone, and breath. The DissoNoiSex group, placed behind the audience, received this sound signal and processed it in real time during the performance. The resulting sound was projected through six loudspeakers.

'Music for three solo performers' presents itself as half chance/half controlled composition. The three amateur performers on stage generate —consciously or not— different sounds depending on how they breathe, while the members of DissoNoiSex mix in real time these sounds and move them through the space of the concert hall.

As listening to this music may affect the breathing of the performers themselves, feedback loops of unpredictable consequences are expected during the performance.

The visual projections appearing behind the soundanists were realized, also in real time, by Pedda Borowski (on behalf of Veronique Onyvaski).

'Music for three solo performers' is a tribute to pioneer sound-artist Alvin Lucier, composer of 'Music for solo performer', to whom this performance is dedicated.
