Abstract

trans.u 4/01 is a performance that uses a hanging steel sheet equipped with sensors and a structure-borne sound microphone for controlling sound and images. A video camera is trained onto the installation and transmits images to a computer, which processes them in real time. The image is projected back directly. The performer, the shadow, the object and the processed image interact directly with each other. The object serves as the only source of sound for the performance: the sound produced by actions with the object is further developed using realtime sound processing and mixed into the original sound. As a result of the permanent superposition and shift of emphasis between acoustic and digital sound, the boundaries between the different levels are blurred. The stage space shows a mixed-reality situation consisting of overlapping image and sound structures.
