Portraits. A solo performance by Jakob Riis for one loudspeaker, aluminium foil, computer and electronics.
In a white gallery space you see a man working with a set up of one loudspeaker, a laptop, various electronic devices and a generous supply of aluminium foil. After mounting a piece of aluminium foil on the loudspeaker, the man turns over to his setup of a laptop computer, a small mixingboard and other electronic devices and starts to make sounds. At first you hear small movements of the alufoil creating subtle noises, the alufoil set in movement by the air moved by the membrane of the loudspeaker. Now a musical crescendo of significant duration takes place. The music are gradually turning into more noisy and louder sounds. At the end of the crescendo small bits and pieces of the alufoil are spit out from the points of the two bass reflex holes in the front of the cabinet. A portrait starts to embody... The music stops. The man removes the alufoil off the loudspeaker and hang it on the gallery walls. A portrait… This action is repeated continuously for two hours, resulting in about 20 - 25 portraits filling the space over time. The audience is free to enter, move around the space and leave during the time of the performance.
