SUSPENDING DISBELIEF is a performance in
which four performers create music by stretching their suspenders. the
suspenders have built-in bend sensors that trigger larry king statements
taken from his tv-show. why larry king? because the gesture of “suspender-stretching”
is a habit larry king has become known for, and he is, in short, "the
man with the suspenders".
the performers have the possibility to select, scratch and replay mr.
king’s voice, in much the same way a dj can while playing records.
the choice of sampled words and sentences lets the performers converse
with each other about suspenders, showbusiness and the current social
and political situation.
