Abstract

Synecdoche:praha and TGoSNYD explore the trajectory of multi-channel sound performance with additional live sound in different spaces and configurations, over two broad categories: sounds designed for/influenced by, a particular space; compositions introducing extraneous sound to existing sonic environments. The project(s) investigated novel approaches to producing site-specific and site-enhancing works (Kaye, 2000), also incorporating a live additional performer and sound-feed into multi-channel performance. The project(s) investigate spatialisation of performance, while incorporating theatrical aspects (text; visuals) into live, multi-channel, site-specific events. The sonic is prioritised and in TGoSNYD the text is decentralised, manipulated to create sounds rather than being recited, allowing it to influence the physical/visual work, thus examining composition in the broadest sense of the term 'performance', exploring how ideas of performance can be reinterpreted through experimenting with multi-channel, site-specific composition.
