Project Details

This sound action was based on the interest on using the sound of the voice (specifically with choral groups) to interpret, replicate or deconstruct sounds that are not typical of the human voice, such as sounds of machines, of nature, of mathematical processes, mechanical and digital.

This project was built in three stages: a sound recording behind closed doors, a live act on the pier of Nowy Port, Gdansk, and a video installation. Syreny (Sirens) started from the idea of replicating with the voices of the men and women the sound of the sirens of the ships.

This live action was created in Nowy Port, a port which for years has ceased to be essential and with it, it has imprinted a halo of nostalgia and abandonment in the whole neighborhood, in which the choir “sang” the airrival of the boats back to the dock.
