Commissioned by Wasteland Twinning Nottingham, Matthias Kispert's Voices in a Field is a collective vocal work written for The Island, which was realised in October 2013. Performers assembled in four groups on the site and recited a text score exploring waste, wastelands and regeneration. The result was a (mostly) continuous game of action and reaction, creating a commons through sound and voice: a collective action between the pre-determined and the spontaneous. The work was filmed and shown as part of Recreation Ground in late 2013. Above is an edited version of this film.
