Feedback Improvisation

22 May 2014, 20:00 - 23:00

  • Yan Jun

In Yan Jun’s performance, he will set up a complex feedback system using speakers, microphones, a mixer and a performing artist, while also integrating the space, the artist’s position and the movements of the audience.


The performance is concerned with no-input feedback and the delicate balance of relationships: performing artist and microphone, speakers and microphone, speakers and contact microphone. Each component of this network of relationships influences the others in a sensitive and unstable way—sometimes producing harsh, piercing noise, and at other moments more discreet and subtle sounds, all completely contingent on the dynamics of the space, the performing artist and his surroundings. The resulting sounds and their interruptions are always unexpected. Yan Jun's performance is presented in partnership with Minute Productions and curated by Eric Mattson.
