Opera of Things

performance: 24 / 05 / 2019
Location: TENT

Jasna Veličković performs her Opera of Things
The electro-acoustic instrument Velicon consists of a metal plate with magnetic figures. By moving a coil over the magnets, Veličković makes their magnetic fields audible and makes their 'voices' sound. In a related way she makes the 'voices' of power adapters or remote controls audible.
The title of this work refers to the 'internet of things' in which everyday objects such as a lamp or thermostat are also connected to the internet.

Free access.
