A contamination map formed of the sonic collaborations shared across different listening sites. Each individual listening is expressed as a unique trace, spreading and colliding with each other as an expression of the hidden microworld contaminations at work in the environments around us...

...Unseen and heard.

Contamination Performance Exercise

From the workshop outcomes and chromatographic traces a performance piece manifestation was crafted, aiming to link all these elements together.
The chromatographic traces acts as a visual codification of the different species the work tries to directly engage and respond to, through listening.

The score follows three phases following an evolution of the sonic contamination workshop exercises, each moving towards the goal of collaborative polyphony.
Many voices existing in space and time, together.

Taking part in the performance were three human instrumentalists and one non-human, moss!
