Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project takes its standpoint in the analysis and discussion of a sound cinema event called Lydbiograf med erotiske noveller held at Musikbunkeren i Gentofte on the 1’st of December 2015. Eroitic novels were played to an audience of sixteen people, who were laying down on mattresses in a darkened room in Musikbunkeren. The event is to be seen as an experiment, which were documented using the method of participatory- and audiovisual observation, as laid out and discussed by Thomas Szuleviczs and Sarah Pink respectively. Erving Goffman's theory about human face-to-face interaction, the personal facade and roleplaying will be used to analyze the audience's behaviour before, under and after the performance. This was done, to observe which behaviours occurred between the audience. We have used Ib Poulsen’s discussion on how sound creates an imaginary space in the audience’s mind, to illustrate how the actors were using their voice to create different auditory effects, contributing in creating this imaginary auditory space. The recording of the erotic novels, created different effects that helped create the imaginary auditory space for the audience and provide narrative propulsion in the novels. Furthermore we have discussed Erika Fischer-Lichte theory about subject-object and subject-subject performances, and how the audience can be understood as a participatory part of the performance. And how the audience can shape each other's perception of the experience of the event. Through Goffman's theory we concluded, that the audience interacted in small ways, before, during and after the performance, which led to a shift in their individual perception of the experience of the performance.
