In in blik, instead of musicians, five tin can towers are performing. The tin cans are humming softly, singing aloud or just breathing . At certain times though, they also try to break out of their tin cans: they start to shake and move, sounding now like percussion instruments. They shake till they drop apart, and nothing more than some ordinary tin cans are left.
Klangverordnung – die verbotene Klänge der Stadt Bern:
A performance on the noise protection regulations in Bern between 1928 and 1980. Many sounds have been forbidden during the last centuries, like singing and shouting in the streets, motor noises, carpet beatings and even the barking of the dogs. I bring these forbidden noises, that have been silenced by law, back in the city. (Rehearsal pictures in Zurich)
