Signal at Dusk

Oerol, Terschelling, Netherlands
15 t/m 24 June 2019
The installation 'Signal-on-Sea' forms the setting for the large scale concert 'Signal at Dusk' by 4 sopranos, an elusive choir and desolate fog horns that sing the sea at 1 kilometer of beach.

The setting of the opera Signal at Dusk is a beach, the stretch of sand that separates sea and mainland. Roaming the beach women’s voices sing about the waves, as sources of seduction, of desire, of nourishment, of danger, destruction, loss. This opera is composed upon the sound art piece Signal-on-Sea, a spatial work that the audience can roam around in, spanning a kilometer long stretch of beach. Surrounded by an incorporeal choir, emanating from 24 loudspeakers, the voices move over the sand with desolate tones from foghorns acting as reference points. Fragments of texts, of poems about the sea lure the audience along a kilometer long stretch of beach as darkness falls. Signal at Dusk connects land and sea in sound, makes them merge in the perception of the visitors, but also allow their sonic manifestations to be scattered on the wind.
