Sound performance
In collaboration with Peter Allamand and performed within the framework of 'Nachtschicht', Festival Rümlingen 2007, on the night of 24th/25th August 2007. Eight participants move around paths in the landscape with mobile accordion objects mounted on wheels; the motion causes the bellows to move thus producing tones and noises. Five conceptual actions for voice and movement in a temporally open form provide the basis for this performance. DVD and photos available from the composer.
