Koorvorming is a participatory performance. The audience is invited to sing together following a prerecorded voice, which functions as a musical score. The score is played over an array of custom made earpieces. Participants are blindfolded. One ear is used to listen to the score over the earpiece, while the other is closed with a earplug, so while singing participants are unaware of what is happening around them. Immediately after the performance every participant receives a CD with the audio recording of the performance and they can listen to it at home.
Koorvorming has been commissioned to Jo Caimo as part of iii’s guest residency program which is organised with DCR guest studios and financed by the Creative Industries Fund NL and Stroom Den Haag. Jo Caimo’s residency was organised as part of an exchange with Overtoon – Platform for Sound Art in Brussels.
