My first inspiration to produce a continuous sound with a percussive instrument evolved through an investigative process of the acoustic qualities of the performance space. I picking out various objects and implements over travels tours, and in working residency I have adapted this piece to be played on a large drum, which is used as a acoustic amplifier. I develop an intimate affinity with the materials in vibration. I have to evaluate these vibrations in my body at different levels, to be able to coordinate my postures and movements, but also like the archer with Kyudo, tuned the mind to it. For give life to these vibrations I have used, since 2008, an dextrocentrique circumambulation. These sounds are often compared to certain sounds produced by synthesizers but also to the magnitude that an orchestra can. However, these sounds depends of the reflective quality of surrounding surfaces, and on the volume of the performance space itself.
These sounds have unusual sonic textures, they escape traditional percussion registers. They test the limits of our perception, from infra to ultrasonic, by playing phase shifts. They insert themselves into the intimacy of matter, through micro vibration, and we are presented with an audio saturation by noise density. The flow of these evokes both restraint and excess, immersion and timelessness.
It is not a concert, it is not a performance, it is not a sound massage; it is not drone music, it’s not noisy or improvised or contemporary; it’s not a circus act or a choreography; it’s not a satanic ritual, or a photo or video shoot for your smartphones or your electronic stuff.
It’s “No Es” and that can only be beyond your comprehension.
Workshop: “Um passo al vazio”
13 february 2023 (time to be defined)
This an flexible workshop, open to everyone for one afternoon or more.
We are the authors of the world we perceive. Our reality exists only through consciousness, and consciousness would be vibration. To create is to recreate, creation can be an interpretation of vision. Vision is a burst of consciousness. I use an simple educational path that carries out a permanent back and forth between perception and interpretation through transmission. From listening to drawing and from drawing to sound. A tool that stimulates the cognitive functions of the participants at different levels, and to question their visions, to be able to compare them, to see them evolve through the filter of the personalities, until the moment of their return to their initiator. It will also be an introduction to collective improvisation.
These moments of participatory sharing and exploration are marked by points of exchange, insight and learning. I prefer to ask the participants to have attended one of my sound actions before the workshop, I consider this moment as the first step on this path where, for a few hours, we will walk together.
An energy dedicated to the emergence of the possible void. The matter to be heard, would be a long hissing, until the massive pounding; like the inertia of a wheel compressing the bodies and the spirits, to dilute the thickness of a density of a hollow.
