Sound piece after : On April 17th 2014 there was a performance Kaj misliš s tem? / What do you mean? at Kult3000, Metelkova, Ljubljana, with Annie Abrahams, Martina Rusham, Jana Wilcoxen and Chantal van Mourik.
Annie, Jana, Chantal and Martina wrote text, using only their mothertongue, about their experience of living in a country where they couldn’t speak their monthertongue and had to learn a new language. They used a shared textpad. They translated their text phrase by phrase via Google in Slovenian. The Slovenian text was fed to Alpineon’s TTS software made by Proteus and diffused live to the performance public. Brane Zorman recorded this sound.
Yet another translation into English gave a poem called You have to accept (a FEW times). New language that you can find here.
The soundpiece was presented in the exhibition Mie lahkoo pomagate ? (can you help me ?) from 21 October to 7 November 2014 in Aksioma Project Space, in Ljubljana. Production CONA.
