During her 25 year career, Berlin based sound artist Christina Kubisch has pioneered the creation of site-specific sound & light environments, sound sculptures & sound installations. First of two planned archival releases, with the performance piece "Two & Two". Performed in Europe & US in the '70s, a live performance for 2 performers, 2 video cameras, a wall of monitors & uncommon objects & instruments. Throughout the performances, people were invited to walk around & observe the live action in real time as close up images of the performance were projected on video screens & unusual objects as sound sources - vibrator, water, swanee whistle, voice, contact microphone on ventilator, prepared alto flute, electronic metronome, waterjet on steeldrum - were sonically "blown up" through self invented systems of amplification. The resulting four pieces on this 1977 recording alternate between heavenly, rhythmically shifting drones to gamelan tinged blistering electronics that sound like distant, corrupted morse code dispatches. Booklet w/new photos of the performance, notes by Kubisch & interview from '79.
