‘Yokomono Pro’ at CTM.10
Staalplaat Soundsystem and sound artists Ilpo Väisänen and Mika Vainio (Pan Sonic) will precent  the outdoor sound-performance-action ‘Yokomono-Pro’.

For the performance we have the Berlin Mobile Carphonic orchestra, that consist of 30 volunteers, each with his/her own car, to be sound-drivers.

Yokomono-Pro features 3 groups of cars – 30 vehicles in total – playing synched sound-patterns and driving a carefully choreographed route around  the siegessäule for a period of approx. 30 minutes. Eachvehicle’s battery is hooked up to a specially designed car horn that is triggered by low-frequency transmitters linked to a central controlling unit. After dividing the vehicles/drivers three groups and assigning each a specific route, Staalplaat Soundsystem, Ilpo Väisänen and Mika Vainio are able to ‘play’ them like an instrument: the interaction of choreographed traffic and the horns’ sound patterns creates a composition tailored to the spatial dimensions of the action.
