performance by Kabir Carter

Report is a spatial and architectural investigation of resonance. Using only a microphone, mixer and speakers, Kabir Carter establishes the acoustic character of a room through the impact of microphone against architecture. By touching, rubbing, scratching and striking surfaces within the selected environment, he generates reverberant, plosive sound events and nodal excitations that form an acoustic sketch of the room. The microphone can also be turned inwards towards the body where clothing, skin and corporeal matter become another set of locations for modifying and supplementing acoustic resonances. The result creates a direct connection between the performing body and the architectural body that contains the event.
