This ‘radiopera’ is an ongoing participative network performance with Jérôme Joy, Kaffe Matthews, Gregory Whitehead, Emmanuelle Gibello, Björn Eriksson, Caroline Bouissou and DinahBird witch began in 2007.
Based on a mix of field recordings, spoken performances & electroacoustic improvisation in a networked playing configuration, SOBRALASOLAS! does not have preestablished scenario, nor is there a story to be told. It is neither a documentary nor a radio testimony. It is a place for glossolalies and echolalias.
SOBRALASOLAS! intercuts collected and improvised sounds with the aim of recreating a new listening environment that is both fictional and real, time-specific and site-specific. SOBRALASOLAS! aims to condense and slow down the process of listening and, by extension, our way of grasping surroundings in everyday life.
SOBRALASOLAS! Episode 1 is edited as a CD on Ohm Avatar (2009)
It has been played at Festival Indisciplinés Sonores (Nice), Expo Festival (Brighton, Uk), FreeRadioSAIC (Chicago, USA), Härnösand (Sweden), and for Radio Creation Day (FR) 2009.
SOBRALASOLAS! Episode 2 was commissioned by Deutschland RadioKultur and was broadcast at Ohrenstrand Berlin for Art’s Birthday 2010.
