Abstract

This article describes some of Antonin Artaud’s ideas concerning the use of sound and space that helped to shape the music for the piece To have done with the judgment of Artaud. The different levels of sonic relationships explored in the piece are explained, considering the use of glossolalia texts as the main driving force to integrate the recorded sound of Artaud’s voice with the voices of performers on stage. In the second part of the article the spatial design created for the production is discussed in detail with examples of different levels of spatial relationships developed using mobile sound sources related to a variety of choreographed movements. In the last part of the article further developments of the work are outlined, considering the use of a wireless loudspeaker system as the basis for a spatial design in which the sounds of mobile sources can be effectively controlled and integrated into the action on stage.
