Walking with scores and performing Gypsy-roots-goes-punk’n’poetry
I arrive at each stop with notes and memorizations from listening to the surroundings at the distance traveled. It can be a score, an idea, a collection of sounds, a melody that sums up the route. I perform it as sound and music performance every hour.
I see this as absurd, solidarity-inspired songs in the broadest sense. An intervention into the pain of this time. Concrete and absurd. In Danish and other languages, including self-invented.
The basics of my equipment are an acoustic octave guitar, a mini-synth with speaker, a radio, timbales connectors, binaural microphones and a bluetooth speaker. I use some drawing tools to make small visual scores / scripts. Unexpected things can also happen with a shortwave or an electromagnetic receiver.
Those present are involved at a distance. People, dogs and sound-producers like bells and percussion-like things – as sound and narrative elements. And sometimes with dance steps. Together.
