In this episode of PlusX, Leonie Strecker and Nathalie Brum threaded together four compositions that resulted out of a dialogue the two sound artists held over the past months. In this exchange of inspirations and material, they dived into a research of the performative quality of the voice. As a result, the outcome combines material questions of space and body with more ephemeral attributes such as the emotive, linguistic and informative qualities to the human or non-human voice.
The piece includes AI and custom-generated texts as well as parts of the Lärmschutzbericht 2019 of the Deutsche Bahn. It is put together of four separate compositions that have been merged and over-lapped for the radio show.
Nathalie Brum is a sound artist and architect living and working in Cologne. Her main interest lies in underlying and overseen infrastructures and its soundscape. Her fieldrecordings of background noise and technical sounds are the basis of her sound transformations. The installations strongly connected to the space of its origin translocate sounds from hidden places to the public.
