Tones in Between

sound installation & performance /  2019

During their stay in Novi Sad, the artists have visited various abandoned sites in the city in order to research about a certain atmosphere in old / used architecture.

Some see those abandoned buildings as scars and others see as interesting architecture with stories or memories. Interesting for their research in this matter is by creating and interpret these building sites into small scale (sound) performances and installations in order to document the reactions of its inhabitants and see which differences it will give, for instance when taking into account the age and background of the spectators.

Using sound and architecture, in order to express and questioning specific atmospherical findings in Novi Sad. They are strongly linked to each other, they depend on each other and determine each other's character and the atmospheric meaning of a site.

Also the character of sound, specific building materials as well as their shape will tell a story which has different meanings for anyone.

The outcome of this residency research will give new meaning and give insight into the development for European Capitals of Culture 2021 in Novi Sad.
