- Sound Installation and Performance of Robot Marionettes
The object sound installation consists of eight motorized marionettes and two "singing masks" (with artificial vocal tracts), which are connected to a MIDI controller. I use found objects and everyday objects such as crown caps, wine corks, scrubbers, tin cans, aluminum foil, plastic bags, etc. to manufacture puppets. Mainly objects that are thrown away unnoticed. Each puppet reacts differently to the movement impulses and gets its own character from the different materials and the way they are put together. Company Soul is a project by Dohi Moon and Bjoern Erlach.
