KLIRR – A spacial sound-scuplture about counting
by Dimitri de Perrot
If you count, you always also break up a “whole“ and begin to divide and put it in order. The beginning of classifications, appropriations and commitments. Also possibly the beginning of a „standardization“ and prescribed thought process, and the end of the speechless and innumerable connections to „what’s out there“ – what we hear, see, feel and sense.
The Festival Klang-Moor-Schopfe in Gais, Appenzell takes place in a moor area where artistic positions are shown in solitary barns: installations, concerts and performances. For this special setting, Dimitri de Perrot created KLIRR, a walk-in and interactive sound sculpture on counting.
With each new person who enters the room, a new counting begins.
