During the residency at Q-O2 Nika Son experiments on a new composition for a multi-channel sound piece in interaction with light and moving image.
For the presentation she’s following the thoughts and questions surrounding various states of mind in the wake of insomnia, the desperate striving for sleep and the longing to stay awake in a world of constant consumption and processing. How does our auditory sense shift at the brink of each state? Which senses take over when and why? When do we hear and when do we listen? What happens to the perception of time and its loss? Which overtones are produced? What rhythm do our thoughts set? What influence do surrounding noises and changes in light have on our hearing? When does the perception of space alter and what echoes are generated?
As it’s a work in progress, you will see and hear an intermediate state composed for differing speakers, video, flash lights and a fan.
