Explorations of sound amplification and alteration with a particular focus on paper as central sonic object.
Explorations into sonic qualities of paper
- Active listening to raw, unaltered and unamplified sounds of paper when folded, crumpled, or just slightly bent.
- Build a repertoire of gestures and techniques fopr paper-based sounds.
- Extent sonic range by adding extremely sensible contact microphones (provided) to pick up structure-based sounds.
- Conceptualising and building “instruments” from paper.
- performance practice with experimental make-shift instruments in solo and group settings
- explore and identify sonic gestures
