  • Installation

Performed as part of the Prague Quadrennial (PQ) 2011 Sound Kitchen event, this experimental piece is site-specific in both its thematic content – providing a heavily processed sound capsule of Prague – and its creation process – all sound recording, composition and realisation were done during the course of the quadrennial.

The performance itself, which took place at the Nova Scena of the National Theatre, involved live diffusion over 6 speakers, positioned around the audience.

In addition to the precomposed piece, Patrick H. Lauke provided an additional live sound source from a Puredata patch, manipulated through a custom-built physical interface – both of which were, of course, also put together on location in Prague.
