With her voice as her instrument, My Lambertsen uses it both in songwriting and in electronic compositions. She composes music using her choral background and improvisation, layering her voices in loops and samples. Mixing it with field recordings and manipulated real sounds, she creates a tactil sounding, but abstract universe - tilting into songwrting and visual imagery filled lyrics. My Lambertsen creates a auditive space of rawness, fragility and presence.
SOUND & VIDEO DESIGN
WE ARE NOT UNIQUE
In the three-part experience design, the audiovisual design took inspiration from the dance choreography and artifacts used on stage. Capturing real sounds from movements of feet on wooden floor, crisp crackles of joints bending, brushing sounds of hands caressing bare skin, the sound of smoke being inhaled, chewing of bubblegum and the roars of the digestion when doing so.
The video design also took a tactile perspective and enhanced elements of the body, materials and props on stage.
Following these sounds and artifacts, were a visual real-time projection of the objects on the stage floor. By using a webcam, the objects were interacted on stage got emphasized and proceted unto the dancers on stage.
The performance set up contrasting questions such as being alike or being unique. Copying or not copying.
