Wear a facemask, keep a safe distance, reduce social contacts, etc. Social-distancing instructions have accompanied us in this global health crisis from the very beginning. Interpersonal relations have been curtailed to protect the individual. Tingles & Clicks strives to explore and resurrect this lost physicality in commissioned works for which outstanding musicians create quasi-tactile experiences.
Inspired by an approach to music making that uses sound in a minimal and abstract manner, relies on field recordings, and with a view to the ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response) movement, extremely spatial and intimate listening experiences are created in the place where most people have recently spent or were forced to spend a majority of their time: within their own four walls. With a computer, webcam, and headphones, everyone can immerse themselves in interactive, auditory one-person experiences.
