Provocation: Any scene or moment from The Cherry Orchard. Sound.
Statement: If I had to give up one sense, where would Sound rank for me? Sound permeates and affects. To create sound, there must be a source, there must also be a receiver. There’s also the oscillator and the oscillated. There is encoding that happens, and decoding that happens. Ephemeral as it is, Sound is energy embodied. Take cues from your inner scape, receive the clangs from your outer scape… I couldn’t give up sound as a sense. Here is one sonic moment of Yermolai Lophakin.
Sketched for the Theatre of Others Composition Workshop 2021 (conducted via Zoom).
