Public rehearsal How we learn the old songs (door Paul Elliman)
An arriving fleet of emergency vehicles, sounds that are all to well known in citylife. Paul Elliman’s work follows language through its many social and technological guises, tracing the ways in which typography, the human voice and bodily gestures emerge in unexpected correspondences with other occurrences and sounds of the city. How do these sounds resonate with issues of authority and power?
Sunday 30 June Elliman presents performance ‘How we learn the old songs’, for which a small group of singers attempt to replicate the sounds of police cars, fire trucks and ambulances. Can’t make it on Sunday? On Saturday 29 June there is a public rehearsal in the halls of TENT.
