Dancing the Voice

Mar 30-31 2012

For the Opera Showroom festival at Folkoperan in Stockholm, Gerhard Eckel developed the sonic sculpture Dancing the Voice, which allowed the audience to sing by means of their hand movements. Using a small tracked hand-held loudspeaker, a maze of opera arias could be explored playfully, provoking the illusion of touching the singers' voices.
