Fields is a networked system exploring new areas of musical performance and audience participation through the use of mobile technology as a medium for sound diffusion. This project is realized in collaboration with English sound artist Tim Shaw.
Fields stems from a desire to reconfigure the audience-performer relationship. The system allows any audience member to join in, at any time, by simply connecting to a specially designed website with their mobile phone, laptop or tablet. The connected devices become an array of speakers which the performers can control live, resulting in an omnidirectional sonic experience.
The piece doesn't feature a stage and we try with each performance to create a shared and intimate environment for music listening.
