Performers meet playable room installation.
“Echochamber/Deadamp” is a Berlin-/Biesenthal-based playable room installation. It is working upon the simple idea of feeding a room back onto itself, using a room microphone and various different speaker types including modified guitar amps.
Usually room characteristics are steady, but made modifiable and playable here – as a room only, and filled with/triggered by players. Imagine for instance a small wooden hut turned into a much bigger room, which then drastically varies in size and sound at various degrees of speed.
“Biesentales” are hosts at Cashmere Radio for one. Here, though, they are a group of 8 players closely associated with Wokule e.V. and their lakeside camp in Biesenthal near Berlin. They all share a faible for slow, improvised music.
Framed by Lippstueck of Air Cushion Finish reading excerpts from Gertrude Stein’s “Ida”, the players fill in-between spaces with music and sound explorations, interplaying with the room installation, in various density and combinations. This results into an uninterrupted, transmutational listener space for approx. 3 hours.
