an exploration of each other’s listening
Stand still for a moment. Sit down, perhaps. Look around you, listen. Maybe it’s loud around you, maybe quiet, maybe those notions don’t add up. What do you hear? Sounds come to you from everywhere, from all directions. Below the threshold of your consciousness, a space, a place introduces itself to you. You first focus on one sound, and then you notice that next to it there is another sound, perhaps more interesting, more intriguing. A sound that almost passed below the threshold of your attention. And so you listen on, jumping from sound to sound until you have recreated a whole world for yourself.
Stijn Demeulenaere and The Third Guy duo present a project where field recordings and musical instruments interact with the natural sonic environment of a place. Through real time interaction the performers create layers of sounds, all interacting with each other, creating a multilayered trialog, bound between time linearity, and the space. With Everybody Lives Here we want to create a performance that explores the sound of spaces. Working with the sound of a place, adding our own sounds to it, and using them to highlight the auditory identity of the spaces we will be playing in. Through an interaction between the three performers and the audience, we want to create a sound environment that researches the sonic being of places, their acoustics, their soundscape and the listening of the audience and ourselves. The performance will be ideally suited for in situ performances, but will also work on stage, in concert halls or other buildings.
