Performance, Dance: Ascension in Noise

During the four-hour sound installation with dancers on 25, 26 and 27 May, the audience can move freely in the Galerie Herrenhausen and leave and return to the installation in between.

The sound installation "Ascension in Noise" leads the audience from inaudible depths that can only be felt physically to the highest regions of sound. The entire spectrum of human hearing can be experienced. Fascinating acoustic phenomena develop with the gradual rise in pitch. Voices and natural sounds suddenly emerge, like sound spirits, and dramatic fluctuations between complete silence and loud noises can be perceived.

Two dancers can be seen at the heart of this sound organism. Moving across the floor at an extremely slow tempo, Myriam Gourfink and Deborah Lary become part of this continually changing living sculpture of sound and silence. 

For this stirring experience the Franco-Polish composer and electronic musician Kasper T. Toeplitz uses only pure tones, which have neither overtones nor harmonies and do not exist in the natural world. The pitch of the 120 different generators alters almost unnoticeably in the marvellous Baroque space of the Galerie. Toeplitz has assigned them varying tempi, so that they can cover the oscillation spectrum individually.

The exceptional, sometimes astounding aural impressions arise solely through the interaction between the sounds and our position in the space. Nothing is manipulated by amplification or additional sound.

Visitors are invited to move freely through the Galerie for the entire duration of four hours. They can also leave the installation and return to it later.
