EchoChamberMusic – DieOrdnungDerDinge at Theaterdiscounter Berlin
Sitting in an echo chamber you don’t hear much, but the little you do hear is amplified in the extreme. In social media the effect is similar: our own opinions are reflected back to us hundreds of times, thereby reinforcing them. Opposing voices are silenced by algorithms.
Together with the sound artist Cathy van Eck, the adventurously experimental quartet DieOrdnungDerDinge search with their usual wit and humour, for connections and parallels between echo phenomena in acoustics, the media and music.
In which echo chambers are we trapped in daily life? Which algorithms can be written for them? How could they sound? And is it perhaps possible to programme a concert to exactly fit the preferences of the audience using an algorithm?
Premiered in February 2019 in Theaterdiscounter Berlin, further performances to be announced shortly
Funded by the Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Europa and the Musikfonds with funds from the Beauftragten der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien. In cooperation with Theaterdiscounter Berlin.
