Excerpt From "What The... You Mean?"Omari Soulfinger
00:00 / 01:55

IN REAL LIFE (aka WTF You Mean?) is a sound collage and live performance, The piece satirically explores social norms by blending live silent comedy with recordings of phone conversations and street interviews from over 30 diverse voices. The seemingly non-linear narrative is driven by the turning of the radio dial, scanning the noisy frequencies of interpersonal dynamics in a context of inequities featuring vulnerable confessions, unpopular opinions, faux-pas, microaggressions, and the paradoxes of privilege. The performance IN REAL LIFE is an immersive experience, where the audience is invited to tune into the cacophony coming from a surreal boombox. Through sound associative vignettes, Soulfinger conducts poetic practical jokes on audience members, interacts with pre-recorded narration/voiceover, and physically reimagines music.
