singing whales and bodyless sirens

blend is a trio of artists researching the science of communication specifically beyond speech. Therefore they collect material all over the world to broaden the meaning of communication.

blend visits the Mortsel area to focus on whale songs. They will sound out the situation of the whales in the moat of the Mortsel fortress and will record their songs to reflect upon the topics of language and communication.
Their representation will be a multilingual and interdisciplinary translation of whale songs which they will present through performance, sound and video.
