Description Perforemance for one oar and live-electronics on the forecourt of the Wasserkiche in Zurich.

I will take / record the sound of the water of the small fonaine and transform it into a water front by means of an oar and electronics.
The rippling water of the small fountain will be recorded with a microphone and shaped by my movements, by means of live electronics, into a changing, tonal, spatial water mass (front).
For this I intend to use an oar, from the Limmat rowing club. The oar will be equipped with a microphone and a sensor. So that the sound of the fountain can be amplified and recorded as well as movements of the oar can be read. The movements will be rather simple and inspired by the different movements of the rowing. These will be performed in the church space through the air. There will be no rowing in the fountain.
I have visited the place several times. It is quite noisy but acoustically good.
I will need 2 PA speakers for this work. I am thinking of placing the loudsepakers on the floor. Maybe a bit slanted so that the LP membrane radiates upwards.
Material Oar, PA, live electronics, fountain, water sounds
