From here to there
Is there any difference?
All the same and nothing either
A door to expanded space
Looking for light in the dark
Exploring places contracted to a point
Listening to silent sounds
Chanting songs of no sounds
Moving while being still
Being without existing
Is like dreaming
while being awake
The Sun rising
The Moon sinking
Light in the Dark
One by One
Songs of Rites
Sun swiming in-between
Chanting a poem of no sound
Contemplating Nature of the Self
Points of fire
Lines of water
Planes of earth
Circles of wind,
looking for the whole in parts
A falling drop of light in the dark
splitted space-time into a pallette of colors
used to paint our reflections
An echo of light
printed on sounds
buzzing in minds
Soundboat is an installation which is made of various metal elements and singing bowls. The whole structure of this set-up was inspired by a number of experiments conducted during a residence in De Oude Beurs.
Soundboat is a vehicle which moves through the ocean of sound and light. It's a tool for space journeys which inspire the crew of the boat to create further and explore other possibilities of immersing in subtle frequencies of space.
Soundboat has come into existence thanks to a mutual inspiration in creative processes between Robert Soroko, Klara Dolhain and Sonic Photon. The artistic approach towards creation and an acoustic resonance of works of Robert Soroko was a main inspiration in building and tuning up the entire installation.
This mutual and collective exchange of energies and ideas was explored later on in a performance of Robert Soroko called 'Moving Lines'
The Soundboat is stirred by Klara Dolhain, John Rausenberger and Sonic Photon.
Reading from the Black Book
It's a setting where words undergo a transformation caused by sounds. This interaction explores sonic qualities of words and their universal features of expressing poetics of space.
The performance begins with a reading of few texts from the Black Book by Sonic Photon. They explore various aspects of space-time and its influence on perception of objects and entities expressing themselves within a place and stretching over time. These texts metamorphose from specific qualities of language towards more universal features of words expressed by their sonic character.
It's a journey through different landscape poems until horizons of sound poetry.
During and between texts a couple of sounds resonates throughout the space:
kaval, ney, shakuhachi, hurdy gurdy
