I presented "Put it down" at Soulkostel, Vernéřovice, Czech Republic. It was on the 15th of December 2018. Soulkostel was a former church inside a forest, on two floors. A good lighting and sound system equipped the space. I had this deep blue light. The lights were a metaphor of the police lights. I integrated my work with some objects found in the church. I used a couple of large wooden candle holders and some microphone's stands to create an action with the cables. The candle holders were useful as pillars, in a sense, for their sacral function and as support for light and fire. I wrapped the cables around the candle holders. Then the microphone's stands become the understructure to build a net of cables that helped me producing the sounds. So, in a sense, the microphone's stands support sound sources, not from the voice, but the movements of the body. I also used the microphone to explore the sound of the wooden floor, according to my action.
