Hit Maker (Sudbury)

(2012)

Participants are sought throughout the city and are asked to hit a surface with a microphone one hundred times. The sound of each person’s actions is amplified. Each person can choose their own rhythm and intensity. Hit Maker is related to Hit Parade (see links below) but where the latter is a kind of happening or event, the former is more of a surprise, a little moment of noise, a strange little gesture, a sonic capsule of labour, a marker of time at work or out in the city.

The performances took place on May 10-11 and was part of the FAAS 3 (Foire d’art alternatif de Sudbury) organized by the Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario.

Other version: Hit Maker (Porto).

Related project: Hit Parade.
