Footprints Of The Forest/ Claim The Space

– Exploring the indoor space as an artistic quality in herding call.

This project is based on questions about the significance of the acoustic space for kulning (herding call). Can I perform kulning without a forest? How can I  explore the creative potentials of kulning in different acoustical rooms? Is it possible to create a Virtual Forest indoor where my voice can subside and echo the same way as outdoors? I explore these questions by improvisation and composition by kulning in a number of real and virtual spaces.
