About the piece
Phones and Microphones is written by Daniel Wolff and the Experimental Music Ensemble. It explores a soundscape of the smartphone different from the one your neighbour in the tube might have been investigating five minutes ago.
A piece for smartphones and electronic pickups which also needs a laptop, Phones and Microphones uncovers the hidden emissions of this digital device now ubiquitous in our urban environment. The interactions of the ensemble’s performers, exploring the subtle qualities of their “Life Companion”, are diffused in the performance space, uncovering a hidden layer of communication. The animate acoustic textures of individual devices are interwoven in a performance that questions the discrete rigidity of the digital. The projections of social interactions commonly mediated by smartphones into their acoustic counterparts obtain their own life in this acoustic space.
