A tribute to Pierre Henry.
S-O-N-N-E-Z is an audio-visual installation with met letters and doorbells by George De Decker and Ward Weis.
Inspired by Pierre Henry’s own doorbell. Is it a traditional “TRING” or “DING-DONG” or something more imaginary ? George De Decker and Ward Weis search in Pierre Henry’s own sound pieces and tries to find a possible answer.
S-O-N-N-E-Z will be live streamed via YOUTUBE and EURORADIO.
