This exposition discusses the performance Song No 3 in the context of research into the use of loudspeakers and microphones as musical instruments, and analyses what kind of categories of movements are generally used in music as well as how these different categories are connected to each other. Song No 3 is a performance for a performer with a small loudspeaker in front of her mouth and a microphone in her hand. This exposition analyses what kind of categories of movements are generally used in music as well as how these different categories are connected to each other. Whereas some are more perceived as ‘silent’ movements, others clearly have a audible result. Due to working with loudspeakers, microphones and digital sound processing, the audible results of movements in a performance can be changed during the performance itself and these changes are essential elements of the composition.
