Leslee Smucker Mixed Messages
March 12 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Mixed messages is an interactive sound experiment based on the tension between technology, communication, and human interaction. This semi-improvisatory, modular, sound collage has two parts. Part I runs through eight messages and builds layers by recording recorded and live sounds; streaming undercurrents from past massages as well as new techniques. As the messages progress, the recordings become more distorted; recording on top of recording, resulting in feedback, disintegration, and degradation of the message. The installation consists of cassette recordings placed throughout the audience. The audience can control which players are sounding at any given time by an on/off foot switch.
During the first part, I ask my audience to record messages on a portable tape recording during the performance. Part II is a live manipulation of the first half messages. In each half, eventually the tape loops, answering machines, violin, and voice change, degrade, dissolve, and modify.
The performance allows for audience members to consider their role in the performance; allowing for a rumination on non-verbal communication, and the degradation of message through technology.
