Stimmtanzperformance
SPUR DER STIMME

Was macht die Stimme aus?

Was hat die Stimme mit Intuition, Selbstkenntnis und  Beziehung zu tun? Und in welchem Verhältnis steht sie zu mir und 'dem anderen'?

Jede Hörerfahrung ist Lebenserfahrung. Sie hinterlässt eine Klangspur auf der Stimme. Diese Spur kann uns zurück zu wichtigen Momenten von Biografie und Zeitgeschehen führen. In unserem Kopf hören wir ständig Anteile anderer Stimmen. Dadurch orientieren wir uns ablehnend, abwehrend oder liebend, begehrend. Unsere Reaktion auf die Stimmen der anderen wird wieder Teil unserer Stimmidentität.

"...The concurrent artistic careers of G. Ligeti and J. Beuys have instilled a desire in Vollmaier for cooperation and new creation inspired by their artistic outputs. In 1963, Beuys organised the first Festum Fluxorum Fluxus in Düsseldorf, and invited Ligeti to take part in the festival. A milestone in the development of Beuys' artistic "actions", the festival served as a catalyst for his sound performances, from then on explicitly referred to as "concerts", while Ligeti radicalized the performative aspect of music in his work.

On the one hand, this was Ligeti's "extreme electronic" approach to the acoustic instrument and, on the other hand, Beuys' concept of tearing down the wall between life and art..."
