audio visual installation, sound performance, 2017
string, wood, foil, e-bow, video, mirror, coloured light
surfing on a long wire is a sound installation and a performative instrument at the same time. A large, shiny graph fills the room and takes up the forms of the room through light, shadow and reflections in order to play with them. A long string is stretched from one corner of the room to the column that holds the graph on the ceiling. With the help of an E-Bow the string is set into vibration, creating an infinite drone, as in Alvin Lucier’s „music on a long thin wire“.
During the performance, the installation is played like an instrument, an experimental experimental Setup between pseudo-scientific measurements and an esoteric shamanistic procedure.
