A pile of rocks, a microphone and a smoke machine. The sound. The breath. A confession.
What can a body do?
We are looking for new grammars of sensitivity, of the wild intelligence of bodies, of the earth’s ground body that reflects ancestral and unknown memories.
“The body has geometry and shapes that no one hears”.
The sound captured and manipulated live was the chosen track to focus the research. Feedback as an invisible element that promotes a shuffle between the inside and the outside, a variable set of places that you can visit.
“Feedback” searches for the meeting point the confessional memories and topics from a searching board with keywords that we’ve been mapping. The air, the listening, the expansion of microperceptions, or the dilatation of time, the reversion of the skin, the evocation of a primitive time.
The rawness, the stripping down to the essentials: the body, the origin of the sound, the technique, the matter.
