"Ambient Variations for a Bunker"
"... a music which will be part of the noises of the environment, will take them into consideration. I think of it as melodious, softening the noises of the knives and forks at dinner, not dominating them, not imposing itself. It would fill up those heavy silences that sometime fall between friends dining together. It would spare them the trouble of paying attention to their own banal remarks. And at the same time it would neutralize the street noises which so indiscreetly enter into the play of conversation. To make such music would be to respond to a need." (Erik Satie)
The thick concrete walls of a bunker are designed to protect people from bombs. Being surrounded by those walls means being encapsulated from the events and rumors of the outer world. They capture every sound and reflect it, until it disperses and looses itself. The thick walls keep away the ambient. And if somehow the sound reached the auditor he perceives it as a distant hum: rather as a vague idea than a definite knowing.
The sound performance of Kalas Liebfried "Ambient Variations for a Bunker" aims to outline this locked condition of the architecture of a bunker acoustically and visually. How does a music sound, which becomes "part of the noises of the environment" (following Erik Satie), if they are only assumable? The focus shifts to the people which enter this locked space coming from the outside, bringing in the noises of their bodies and the rumors of the surrounding kept in their minds. The performance occurs as a processual and participative recording session during the whole day and passes over in its own staging during the blue hour.
