Human Sound I

Project Human Sound originated from a thought that every human being can be identified and recognized sonically. Sound-oriented performance series on the audial and compositional side of humans reaches out into how we experience human existence, what bonds and separates humans, and how we can generalize and personalize sound. It crosses the topics of sensitivity, deep listening, empathy, communication, while almost screamingly asking – is there a soul in humans penetrating from every sound they make? Human Sound aims to combine performative and audial mediums to offer for the audience a possibility to listen and to better understand the music of their own bodies, thoughts, memories and therefore to enable deeper listening and understanding of one another. 


Human Sound performance is filled with thinking streams and feelings of a Taiwanese performer En Ping Yu and transformed into a polyphony of sounds by a Finnish sound artist Valtteri Alanen, creating an experience of different tracks playing from a layer of consciousness. The Human Sound project is a live audio (and performative), almost a concert/stand-up formant taking experience.
