Viewing single post of blog KlangHaus journey to CoP26 Glasgow

We have been planning solo audience shows in our house over the Christmas period. The audient is met at the gate to our alley way, shown into a darkened room. There are speakers arranged around a central armchair. The solo audience member, wearing a mask, sits in the chair, the lights dim to complete darkness. Sounds are played, sounds we haven’t witnessed for 8/9 months, the sound of being in a crowd, close-up singing, harmony singing, other people noise close-up. The sound piece lasts for 9 minutes, the light reappears, perhaps a match strike, a candle lit, an image of a huge staircase. Eyes adjust, the audience is shown to the front door to exit. The room is ventilated, the chair cleaned, door knobs wiped with anti-bacterial spray.
We begin again. 20 times a day for 13 days. If Tier levels allow. The show is called Dark Room: Listen In. Trained in wet processing photography ghosts of being in a photographic darkroom linger. Working with designer Paul Flack we have a beautiful poster celebrating the iconic design of the photographic printing world of decades ago. I’ll let you know if the shows go ahead.
