The performance Where Do You Wanna Go Today (Variations) works with a Pop Musical Audiobook (2017). The album is comprised of different acts, songs, and stories but is treated as a single work rather than a collection of individual pop hits of perfect length, structure or quality. It adopts a playful approach to comment on the ways music is perceived today. The title hints to the music’s composition in relation to the acts’ structure, length, melodies, words and themes of geography, texture and, most importantly, the contemporary disorientation of identities.
By restructuring pop songs and zapping through different architectural worlds, this album evokes feelings of dislocation, instability, fear and the struggles involved in love and relationships. It advances a queer anonymity freed from any fixed cultural identity in an age of accelerating media exposure fixated on fame.

Where Do You Wanna Go Today (Variations) is performed by the voice and body of PRICE. This hybrid fictional character, born from the sea of information, explores the emotional disorientation of a generation having grown up with mass culture, neoliberalism and the omnipresence of the internet. Mathias Ringgenberg developed this character with which he is focusing on the precarious deterritorialized body and its hybrid and queer structures.
