Noister: wave³ combines the forms of kinetic sound arrangement and movement performance based on contemporary circus practices. Through the merging of two different artistic genres, authors are exploring the relationship between man and machine, which alternate the roles of manipulator and manipulated. The result of the relationship – sound, becomes a catalyst for further interactions and at the same time connects the space between the performer and the objects.
Circus as an art form confronts performers and spectators with the vulnerability of the human body. The circus transcends physical vulnerability with extraordinary movements, tricks, figures, but it remains present throughout a possibility of a fall or failure, injury or death. In the play, Noister entrusts his life to his modular synthesis speakers, which he places in various precarious installations or balancing platforms, throwing them into the air or spinning them around the room.
The interaction between objects and Noister on the other hand, creates a soundscape that constantly moves through space, thus making sound more tangible and placing it in the position of the co-creator of space. The soundscape is always changing throughout the performance and consequently influencing the viewer’s perception of what is happening on stage. Sound sometimes comes from the left, sometimes from the right, above, below, near or far, travels through space, disappears, or completely fills it.
