Transeuropa Festival Hildesheim 27.05 - 01.06.2015 

The artist Séverine Urwyler invites visitors on her sound massage table for a journey inside their bodies. Similar to the hearing 
system of insects - who are listening with their legs - the auditory perception is perceived through structure-borne sound waves 
and therefore evokes a new auditory paradigm. Bones and hollow spaces such as a ribcage or a skull are amplifying the sound 
and create a very precise sound image. Elsewhere at the peripheral body zones a complete different sonority appears and 
evokes physical reactions such as shuddering. The installation plays with the perceptual conventions of the auditory and the 
tactile: Lying on the sound massage table your body and the space around you become confused, whilst the present dissolves 
into numerous experiences of the here and now.

The performance is part of the residency program of transeuropa.
