OWRSI at Dag van de Componist 2023: t__hr__n

A second performance of our electroacoustic performance t__hr__n on 17 June as part of the Dag van de Componist festival organised by Intro in Situ.

Phone calls from the detainees at Tehran jail have an aural watermark imposed upon them: a recorded female voice repeating each minute that the call is made from the jail. These interruptions are a forcible imposition of form upon the regular forms of speech and conversation. As a counterpoint, Nader and Sachit improvise using synthesisers that generate drones, presenting an organically developing and unified voice.
