“Structure and the Other”

Structure and the Other” is a collaborative project of the soundartists Lukas Truniger and Nicola L. Hein.

Based on different theories about the relationship of music and language and inspired through the talking drum, el silbo and other musical forms of communication they develop a group of semantic instruments.

These instruments are sculptural instruments: At the same time they are sculptures and instruments.

By writing text on the sculptures it is possible to communicate through the sonification of the text. The text gets translated from sound back to text through the other sculptures. These form a communicative network of semantic-aesthetic actors, which are played by the two soundartists.
