"MM" schäumend - Overture for Handheld Fire Extinguishers

 

project sketch

 

The intention is to make a staged concert performance with 15 extinguishers that have different sizes, that are fitted with different "mouthpieces", and that are filled with different contents.

The staged (scenic) aspect arises from the forms created from the foam and other contents. The foamy sounds resonate in variations through the use of different floor surfaces. A closed performance hall is most suitable for this piece.
