Speakers hidden all over the quarry to give you an unexpected sound experience where you wouldn't expect it.
Imagine walking along one of the quarry roads leaving a rabbit rave when you hear the soft voice of a wise woman reading fairy tales. Or when taking a piss among the trees to a sound interpretation of the Cosmic Background Radiation. Or maybe when you're heading for a swim and end up being lured in by a lecture on quantum thinking.
We will build sound installations in the unexpected places to enhance the serendipity of Borderland.
The idea is speakers and sound sources camouflaged so that they are either not seen at all or into some artsy stuff if that feels right. Sound can be curated, crowd sourced as well as recorded during the burn.
The extended idea is that some speakers are connected to distant microphones that take up sound from another place of the quarry.
I have about 5 stations already, the rest we will crowd-source and those who contribute will be naturally involved. I will also involve some sound artists and it will be possible to record and update the sounds during the week.
Should be minimal Moop. We'll be responsible.
Sound might only be one part of the creation. If you want to create something around or next to a sound piece that is welcome.
Otherwise, if you want to contribute with sounds that's great, equipment is great, any other help is also great. Just give me a shout and there will be stuff to do :)
Congratulations! You've stumbled upon something special. Borderland is a participatory festival that takes place in Boesdal, Denmark. It's a fully participatory event where everything is created by the participants themselves, with out any spectators.
