Pieces of quiet

PIECES OF QUIET creates a closed circuit between image, sound, installation and performer, using reassembled televisions and electronic devices. In this search for interaction, a rare and sincere direct situation is created in which every part is tightly connected, resulting in a sensation of maximal intensity in the audience's eyes. When sound is directly translated to image, without a precomposed digital prefix, an intuitive desire for interaction between the image and the sound is born in the mind of the performer. The fixed circuit imposes specific compository limitations on the performer, the image hence becomes instrument, producer and composer. The performer becomes both master and slave to the image that is produced.
