Sound performance, 30min
[Musical interface: Arduino + sensors, MAX/MSP ]
Created and performed with S+even: Ci-Ruei Li, Nei-Mei Wei, Ka-Ying Li, Yi-Fung Chen, Urška Aplinc, Garim Goh.
“S+even” stages 7 performers waiting for the performance. Are they waiting for the performance to start or to end ? Who is performing ?
Equipped with sensors interacting with a MAX/MSP patch, each one performs a gesture of boredom that triggers and controls interconnected parameters of the sound, as one body. Merged within the audience, their subtle choreography generates an accidental composition and embraces audience expectations.
Are the performers acting as spectators or are they dragging the audience in their own waiting process ?
