trans & form, hit & run


trans and form,
breathe and hum,
dive and touch,
hit and run
– David Helbich(2019)

For this sound trip we send you into the urban wilderness with open headphones, an mp3-player, a map and a drum stick. You cross the town and parking lots, walk along a future tram line and under a highway into the green. You touch a military monument and pause in a skate park.

Intro-active journey

This trip will guide you through an “intro-active” journey with sound manipulations, self-performance tasks and micro-choreographies. Back at the starting point, you are changed – transformed by the new relationships that you have established with your environment. Don’t see the city with different eyes, see your eyes through a different city. Hear your ears through different voices. Be surprised by your new superpowers. They let you hear what’s silently in front of you, and make you feel what was not meant to be touched.
