transmitter2ears is a live performance/installation with two parabolic speakers, binaural microphones, radio transmission and a synthesizer. Together they form an audio-feedback loop, open to the sounds of the environment. A performer/musician equipped with binaural microphones, is interacting with the audio-field of the highly directive speakers. In the performance, Lanzmaier and Zißler and their collaborators actively blur the lines between performer, listener, musician and landscape, turning the whole ecosystem of the site into an instrument. The sounds picked up by the binaural microphones provide an audio stream from the "perspective" of the performer which will be broadcasted for the radio audience on WGXC 90.7-FM and wavefarm.org/listen.

Andreas Zißler and Fabian Lanzmaier are transdisciplinary artists based in Vienna. Coming from different backgrounds (architecture, fine arts, and sound/music) they share an interest in sound and its relation to space. Recently, they have collaborated on different site specific installations, working with feedback systems, parabolic sound reflectors, and spatial audio.
