Hubraum. For two vibrating speakers, objects and video projection

Deep infrasound frequencies set the membrane of a loudspeaker in motion without the sounds being heard. The Performance uses this displacement to make various objects vibrate motorically. Pitching is also possible by bending materials. The constantly varied vibrating is structured by precisely placed pauses. – A playful reinterpretation of the conventional use of loudspeakers and a visualisation of physical properties of sound.
