Ideally, I would like to create a water piece in which water will be leaking from a ceiling and a performer will be dancing in the puddle beneath it. The movement of the performer would create the noise of the piece, and the drip of water would be the source of this happening.
However, to start smaller, I will focus on the movement of a hand in a pot of water. I want to focus on how to interpret the sounds of a hand in water. I am assuming whatever bucket is holding the water, will be connected to a microphone and then the microphone will be attached to a machine that will interpret the sounds of the hand. However, from here on I am not sure technically how to achieve interesting and new sounds.
Conceptually, I like the idea of moving within a mishap, finding joy within a misfortune. The misfortune being the leak. I am very interested in Doug Aitken’s Sonic Fountain http://vimeo.com/58588714 . I really loved the way he transformed the sounds of the water dripping. However, I want to include the interaction of a performer.
