V.A Golden Beirut - New Sounds from Lebanon. 2011. Outhere Records / Norient.



The «Sonic Traces»-performance visualises how Switzerland sounds today. It offers varied, surprising and contradictory insights into 21st century Switzerland. The basic framework of the performance is sonic sources from Switzerland: music, noise, everyday-, media- and nature-sounds. They are processed into a dense acoustic mixture, partly alienated and manipulated. In the process of collecting, not only sounds, but also images are captured: images of places, people, instruments plus other objects, as well as films with interviews and concerts. They complement the acoustic mix on a visual level and in form of noise the video-audio-tracks also supplement the acoustic mix. The performance bets on live elements with live musicians within a clear compositional and dramaturgical framework. Continuously, the live performances are altered and complemented: various guest artists are invited and the performance is adaptable in topical focus according to certain locations or festival themes, or any current national or international discussion. The performance is deliberately seeking a mixed audience: experts as well as lay people are addressed. It can be adapted to great concert halls, art galleries, cinemas or any size of club.
