Audiovisual performance (Sonolight)
audio-visual performance by Ge-Suk Yeo
Duration: 10:00 - 60:00 min
Dancing under the electronic moon.
It is night. Light shines through a window and is reflected in a room. The piece interprets this surrealistic lightshow musically and visually.
A poetic view at the moon, from the perspective of fish underwater.
Fish Moon - live
Fish Moon - the video
A crystal ball jumps on the floor - in an empty fish bowl: back and forth.
A radio - a robot dog. On the radio someone tells a story about a blue fish who dreams of a visit on land... - a surreal lullaby.
Someone talks about music. At the beginning and end of a piece of music is silence: "Is the silence the opposite of sounding music or sound itself?" - "Or is it even part of the music?" Anyways - the music continues.
A radio, birds and a humna beeing. Whoever hears what and how? The piece plays with the exchange and the simultaneity of perspectives.
The electro-acoustic music is on radio sounds, accordion and soprano voice.
The text in the video is taken from the aria 'Sweet Bird' part of the opera 'Il Pensieroso' by Georg Friedrich Handel.
Libretto Sweet Bird aus Il Penseroso (für Sopran-Stimme):
Sweet bird, that shun'st the noise of folly,
Most musical, most melancholy!
Thee, chauntress, oft the woods among,
I woo to hear thy even-song.
Or, missing thee, I walk unseen,
On the dry smooth-shaven green,
To behold the wand'ring moon
Riding near her highest noon.
Sweet bird. . .
Humorous view of a dialogue between a dog and the voice of a telephone handset.

Birds. People. - In the rain, everything is blurred and changed mysteriously.
