Speaking Trumpets

sound, mixed media  

For their GDR residency, Angel Nevarez & Valerie Tevere have designed a set of acoustic extensions (speaking trumpets) that penetrate the building's facade. On the occasion of Queen's Day, this new domestic infrastructure was inaugurated with a broadcast on the politics of 'listening in'. Using lo-fi and lo-tech amplification, music, anecdotes, recipes, situations, and sounds of the interior space of GDR was exteriorised. This sound 'outervention' reverses the usual process of keeping domestic sounds in and exterior sounds out.
