Registraties


1. Names, coronal sections of the head
Source: Atlas of anatomic correlation’s in CT. AND MRI. Gerhardt/Frommhold edition Thieme New York 1988
Performers: 10.  Duration: 25 mins.

On a dark stage, a performer sits on a chair. The first section of  the head is projected onto the performer’s head by means of two lightlines: each slide projects an acute lightline.
Behind the chair is another performer holding a textbook with a small light attached.
This person recites all the Latin terms for the anatomical elements pertaining to this section.
When finished reading this list, the next sectional lightlines are projected onto the head. The first voice performer steps back and the second one takes
position behind the chair. This second performer starts reciting the names of the second section, at a different pitch to the previous reader.
The first performer starts repeating the names on the list at the same pitch as before, but at a  lower volume.
Each subsequent voice performer speaks at a different pitch.
The further they step back, the lower the volume of their  voice. They move gradually, making slow sideways movements to and from the middle line.

2. Names,  Meridians
Source: Globe, Rico editions, Florence.
Performers: 12.  Duration: 20 mins.

Standing in a curved line, each of the performers carries a globe on which one meridian is marked.
Above them is a digital clock. The clock is set at zero, and runs for a duration of 20 minutes.  During this time, the performers call out the names of all cities, seas, rivers etc. whose printed name touches their meridian. They start at zero at the North Pole, meet again at the South Pole at 10 and finish together at the North Pole after 20 minutes.
They vary their volume and speaking tempo in accordance with the print size of the names on the globe : i.e. large, small or widely spaced letters.
An automatised  light programme  starts simultaneously at zero and regulates  the light intensity of a spotlight on top of each performer, according to the volume or duration of each word spoken.

3. Annual weather report for the Netherlands; 1992
Source: J.O.W. 1992 Koninklijk Nederlands Meteorologisch Instituut, De Bilt
Performers: 12.   Duration: 20 mins.

The performers are situated against the back wall of the stage. The middle part of the stage is fully lit with soft edges.
Each of the 12 performers read out a monthly report as they cross the stage through the light.
The reading commences in the dark at low volume; the further one gets into the light, the higher the volume of speaking.
The time and speed schedule differs for each performer’s movement.
When all the performers have completed their reading, they stand in front of the public, viewed as silhouettes against the stage light.

4. Annual report water levels in Dutch rivers
Source: Jaarboek 1990 Directoraat-Generaal Rijkswaterstaat, Eijsden
Performers: 11.  Duration 7 mins.

Each performer recites one report.
When read aloud, the tables form an audible pattern.
The stage is dark. Situated to the left and right are very narrow spots whose beams shine across the stage at head level.
The performers walk to and fro from the back to the front of the stage,  each along one line.
They walk in the rhythm of the pattern, reciting their text (numbers) in the same rhythm.
However, there is a slight variation in the walking and reciting speed of each performer.
While walking,  the performers’ heads pass through the spotbeams  at different intervals, thus creating a sort of moving field of sound and light.
