Paluszewski-Hau, Mads Bech: SKIN 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    SKIN is a manned installation and performance which was developed at a 3 week residency in May 2019 with generous support from Inter Arts Center and Danish Composers Society.
    SKIN takes shape as an orchestra of suspended objects whose inner resonance are brought to life as an animistic-inspired ritual, resulting in a immersive sound experience resembling a bioacoustic environment where each object finds its own voice and place within the whole. The objects have been carefully selected and staged for both their resonant behaviour as well as their visual character of telling a story from their origins.
    The sound material in SKIN comes solely from live feedback sound sent through each object, making the material quality of each object become the voice-body of each object.
    SKIN is a composition to be applied to various conceptual backgrounds, where a revelation of lifelike attributes within the material world is required.
