LeitFarbe, an electro-acoustic composition that involves interactive improvisation with the audience Description:
Sound artist, Andrea Williams, composes immersive sonic environments with field recordings, laptop, small instruments, and room resonance. These electro-acoustic "surrealscapes" can bring urban noise to a meditative level, and they often draw the listener into a visual travelogue of memories. Her compositions evoke her soundwalks, walks based on listening and creatively interacting with the sonic environment. Her current project, LeitFarbe, is an electro-acoustic composition that involves interactive improvisation with the audience.
LeitFarbe in German means “primary color” or “guiding color”. For this live sound art performance, the audience is invited to paint on large sheets of paper with black conductive paint– creating a long line that completes an open circuit. Once the painted line is dry and it connects with the floor-triggers, you then can step on the floor-triggers to change the sound samples. You can improvise live to create the immersive soundscape together.
