Felix Kubin: Test signals

Felix Kubin – electronics
Veronika Zott – movement apparatus

Test signals are not exactly popular. We automatically think of broadcast breaks and geometrical images. The sound qualities of test signals range from peak tones over sweeps and white noise all the way to vocal sounds and soundcheck blabber. They are associated with a state of being before the actual program starts. They’re doomed to stay on hold for optimization.
For Art’s Birthday, sound futurist Felix Kubin from Hamburg and Vienna based performer Veronika Zott set the test signals free from the prison of functionality and condense them to a composition of interval symbols, extreme frequencies, voicing methods and sound costume movements.
