The “acoustic laptops” are wood boxes with various tiny objects attached; springs, stones, metal, rubber, string, needles, memorabilia – amplified by contact mikes (piezos).
They are musical instruments with which you can explore a sound world that usually passes unnoticed and thus connects with unfiltered reality in a pleasurable way.
In this workshop we will spend 2 days exploring concepts of space and how we experience and express space. Many of my ideas will focus on audio-art, however visual artists, architects, dancers, poets, actors, or gymnasts are explicitly welcome to participate, since the idea of trans-medial spaces is one of the things we want to understand.
