In Unison

»In Unison« (5’28”, 2009)  focuses on the production of voice as a social event, on the formation of a single voice as a collective act. It is a slow, intimate, concentrated portrait of an anonymous blonde woman, who, according to the movement of her mouth is obviously singing, however we hear no sound. We see her trying to sing in tune with two other singers, constantly hovering between the two looking for confirmation. The work’s title, »In Unison«, playfully hops between a literal and metaphorical meaning: It means singing in one voice, but the expression has also come to denote ‘having the same opinion’.The work thus mediates between the individual and the communal voice, which is made manifest here both in musical and sociopolitical terms.
