Nodar Social Composition

2007, performance, commissioned by Binauralmedia, Nodar, Portugal

The same sound will be perceived completely differently if it were placed in a different situation. How people reacts to sounds? Those who brought up in an apartment facing with busy traffic, would register certain sounds in the same manner as those who brought up in a quiet village? Can the sound of a big truck passing with rattling beer bottles, be someone’s comfort? With this project, o.blaat aims to experiment with non-language communications involving with symbols (codes) and sounds in order to create a social / collective action as musical composition. She is hoping that it would enable her to encounter with people in Nodar with different language and culture background, to build (an) alternative mean(s) of communication.
