What happens when two musicians collaborate with three visual artists? How does a composer ‘see’ the sounds that come out of a drawing or a sculpture? Can a drawing or a sculpture be made to ‘sing’?
This project is about practitioners from different disciplines, genres and media engaging in each other’s works and modes of production while adding their own interpretations and expressions from sculpture to video, from drawing to singers.
Hearing Images & Seeing Sound is a collaborative performance-installation that attempts a transition between mediums (performance, sculpture, drawing, video and sound), where one takes on the quality of the other. Rather than merely displaying interest in the translation of inherent qualities of each medium, these works show how one can inhabit the other and interpret interaction and performativity.
Conceived by Dr Robert Casteels, this project brings together visual artists Milenko Prvacki, Joshua Yang, and Hilmi Johandi, composer and conductor Robert Casteels as well as electro-acoustician and e-luthier _Dirk Stromberg. Singers Evelyn Ang, Angela Cortez, Melissa Estrella, Daniel Ho, Jeremy Koh, David Ng, Leslie Tay and Felicia Teo interpret the graphic score consisting of Joshua Yang’s Still Life in Blue Minor, No.1 and 2, whilst the sound of their voice is transformed in real time by Dirk Stromberg.
