1st theoretical investigations;
examples of what could be called, or involve, a stage; a church, a rock stadium concert, an empty rock stadium, a political rally, a cabaret club. Each of these provides a dramatic environment and potentially interesting soundscapes. I experimented with some sound samples and found the mixing of these environmental sounds over each other or after each other enhanced the concentration on each.
From our three way discussion/workshop;
we analysed what is a stage,
a controlled space?
does it need an audience to be a stage?
a platform, a door, a focal point?
real? ritualised, formalised, conventualised.
speakers corner, street performer, corner-shop.
Some conclusions to go forward with:
For us to (Find) a stage we decided we need a location and a narrative.
So the next challenge for CollectiveA is to establish three separate pairs of location and narrative to throw into the next chapter of churning and turning collaboration!
