A Series of Audio Performances for Cell Phones
is a growing compilation of commissioned audio works by an international group of artists from various backgrounds. It is dedicated to the rant as an artistic format, motivated by feminist and queer perspectives. The series is a scattered yet collective choir, that is delayed only by time and distance. Each artist departs from the previous rant hence adding a new voice to the QuaRANTine Choir.
In her performances, artist Nora Turato
incessantly calls for an “almost nonsensical desire to be loud, too much, unstable, possibly insane in public and to make something out of it,” largely because the general public seems not quite ready to have a woman shriek, rant, gossip, and whine at them, or stare them down.
For our digital community and audio project QuaRANTine Choir, 10+ artists and musicians play with whatever ranting and queer/feminist noise means to them and to create a short audio work. Cell phones or other mobile devices serve as recording as well as listening devices. Since each rant is sent to the next artist as starting material, the whole series also works as a slowed-down artistic chain reaction.
Starting Tuesday, June 2nd, 2020 one new episode of the series will be published weekly on Soundcloud. The first audio performance is by Nora Turato
, an Amsterdam-based artist who in her performances uses a cacophony of voices and fuses a mixture of source materials in an attempt to dismantle the preconceived ideas of femininity.
New tracks will be added each Tuesday 6pm (CET), starting June 2nd 2020
