»The sonorous cognition of the movement.«
Starting from an interdisciplinary perspective of methodological integration of body and sound in Isabelle Choinière dance performance, this lecture will attempt to define the general aesthetic notion of bodysoundscape. In this context, the performer on the Isabelle Choinière's composition process considers the sonorous body potential as a mean of work, using a great range of organic sounds which involves a deeper listening to one's self, in order to create a new organisation of a body sensibility. In this framework, my analysis about the new creation by Isabelle Choinière will penetrate both the matter of sound as well as the structure of the body, tackling the idea of a transformation of the body and the sound through technologies on the stage. The use of new technologies can modify the perceptive geography of the performer by increasing his consciousness of internal physiological process of movement through sonorous feedbacks and induces the creation of a new movement, a new anatomic architecture. These aspects of the composition influence also the spectator's perception and change the notion of listening on the stage.
