Annabel Schouten and Gemma Luz Bosch have developed an acoustic immersive installation for their co-created concerts, in which the audience listens while lying down. The audience is invited on the artwork. Baden is a minimalist, personal and intimate concert that prompts you to slow down, be still and experience your own body. During the concert you can listen to a composition of whispering flutes, driving rhythms and fragile voices. The surfaces sings as your body gently descends.
The duo developed several site specific concerts with the installation together with Music Performance Artist Konstantin Schreiber. In December 2023 the three of them started Baden Collective. In 2024 they will work on new forms for the installation. Scroll down to find some documentation of the concerts that have taken place.
