Lampo encourages you to bring a plate, knife, fork, spoon … and if you like, a glass and something to drink. We’ll have tables and chairs set up around the space. 


German artist Achim Wollscheid offers a real-time electronic transformation of sound. And to create a context for making sound, Wollscheid and volunteers cook potato pancakes for the audience.

Microphones arranged around the performance space capture the clatter and buzz of food preparation (Cuisinart, frying pans on hotplates, etc.), eating and conversation. Throughout the performance, he uses his laptop to transform these sounds and mix them live.
