Là-haut is a semi-improvised piece written for solo saxophone and electronics composed and performed by Sonia Killmann. The show explores concepts of 'home' as a feeling rather than a place through of Pauline Oliveros' Deep Listening techniques. It encourages the audience to explore the power of their imagination through abstract visuals, field recordings and ambient music. The show starts with a short talk about Pauline Oliveros and field recording. Then it moves into a collective listening exercise, in which the audience listens to a sonic collage of captured sounds before. After this, the field recordings seamlessly blend into the musical performance that uses synthesizers, saxophones, tape and voice to complement the visuals that have now appeared in the background. This show is supported by Shaper Caper as part of their Queer To Stay Bursary.
