Fields

Performance

Fields is a collaboration between myself and Sébastien Piquemal. In this piece we explore mobile technology as a medium for sound diffusion. Audience members can join in by simply connecting to a specific website with their mobile phone, laptop or tablet. The connected devices become an array of speakers that the performers can control live, resulting in an omni-directional sonic experience.

Fields stems from a desire to reconfigure the audience-performer relationship. The system allows any audience member to join in, at any time, by simply connecting to a specially designed website with their mobile phone, laptop or tablet. The connected devices become an array of speakers which the performers can control live, resulting in an omnidirectional sonic experience.

The piece doesn’t feature a stage. The performers are sitting among the audience. This intimate setup, is an attempt to demonstrate the potential for enhancement of communal listening through explorations of new aural contexts, and we hope it will become a shared and intimate environment for music listening.
