What does nature have to say? To find out, Myriam Van Imschoot visited a zoo, used a tuning fork to listen to a motorway and discovered birds that sound like chainsaws or can imitate the ringtones of mobile phones. Drawing on a variety of field recordings, five performers – with backgrounds in the noise underground scene and pop – replicate these various sounds, using only their voices. The result is a radiophonic performance, a show to listen to and watch, both recognizable and abstract, and in which notions about humanity, nature and machines are called into question.
