A three-part embodied performance of electronic music based on gestural inter/actions.
“There exists in the midst of life / The possibility of an island” – Michel Houellebecq
Part I - Intentions
Part II - Elements
Part III - Traces
On stage the physical presence of the performer presents the only point of focus. No other elements are apparent, thus emphasising the invisible nature of the electronic instruments and opening the perceptual space for physical expression. By deliberately stepping away from traditional ways of playing electronic music instruments through mixing desks, keyboards or mice the affordances of abstract movements for musical performance become apparent. The combination of visible actions and gestures with directly or abstractly linked sounds creates mental images both in the performer and the audience.
Performed at Sound Reasons Festival, Delhi, India, 07/11/2012
