BURNING ICE :: WHAT NATURE SAYS
What does nature say? Myriam Van Imschoot, in the frame of the eighth edition of Burning Ice Festival – an acclaimed forum for scientists, policy-makers, farmers, activists and artists -, gives us a seductive and hilarious, but also troubling, answer through an original radiophonic artwork – her first group performance: What Nature Says.
Drawing on a variety of field recordings (she visited a zoo, discovered on walks in the woods birds that sound like chainsaws or in David Attenborough’s nature documentaries she found other examples of birds that sound like ringtones, lawn-mowers or car alarms, …), five performers – coming from the noise underground scene to pop – replicate these various sounds, using only their voices. The result is a sort of a cappella rendition of the planet’s soundscapes.
You will come home from Kaaistudio’s with even more questions.
