Background Noise I
Performance in public space, 2022
with Oneka von Schrader
as part of the project “Contain a Converse”
For "Background Noise I" in December 2022 an art container was transformed for two days into a foggy Christmas world, which rustled between concert and performative installation, quietly in the background of the noisy bustle of the Vienna Christmas market at Karlsplatz. The traditional Christmas carol "Stille Nacht" was the starting point for musical and installative explorations and resulted in 5 different reinterpretations of the folk song. Mixing traditional, modern, sacred and grotesque sound fragments, deconstructed compositions of well-known texts and melodies emerged, questioning traditional habits and old stories and celebrating the annual gathering in a different way.
