Based on the term ‘hyperreality’, composer Martin A. Hirsti-Kvam has created Hyperrealities, a site-specific city soundwalk, exploring the connection between the real and the virtual.The participants of the soundwalk wear headphones and experience Aarhus through the real sounds of the environment blending seamlessly with a virtual soundscape, all augmented to a level where the listener will find it hard to decipher one from the other. An ultra-sharp sonic environment envelops the participants, raising their awareness of themselves, their actions and their surroundings, lending new perspectives to the reality of everyday life. The soundwalk thereby transforms a quotidian experience into a hyperreal or even magical one.
At dawn we conclude our time together with a sunrise performance by the Copenhagen-based vocal group, ilinx. The composer/singer trio is protecting, preserving, and enchanting through use of the human voice.
[Hyperrealities can be experienced both before and after the performance by ilinx]
