Photos - Vehicle: Soundings and fathoms

Marx brings his enigmatic Vehicle-project to the Woordfees. In pursuit of drawing a voice (and narrative) from an inanimate object, Marx has grafted classical string instruments – a cello, two violins and a double bass - onto the body parts of a car. The automotive body becomes the resonator box from which a rich, broody, and immersive sound world is drawn. It is a project of ‘musical forensics’ in which strings are used to see how sound affects what we see and how we perceive. This is done through the extraordinary improvisational exploration of celebrated musicians Shane Cooper and Kyle Shepherd. Writer and performer Toast Coetzer’s evocative prose and vocals further layer Vehicle’s rich, moving and transportive landscape of sound.
