Sound Performance Event

with Narval (Evgenija Wassilew/Peter Strickmann) and A Tale of Waters (Lola Posani/Erica Meucci)

NARVAL (Evgenija Wassilew & Peter Strickmann) creates acoustic dialogues by making use of everyday objects, self-designed instruments and a variety of acoustic feedback techniques. Narval uses the specific architectural conditions of the exhibition space: a selection of acoustic feedbacks, generated and modulated live on site, moving through the space like acoustic drawings. The space is acoustically scanned, amplified, and vibrated. Likewise, everyday objects such as teapots, smartphones, and one’s own voice are used in the performance. The theme of invisibility as an essential characteristic of sound, and noise is performed in a sequence of dialogic and improvised moments.
The Duo was founded in the winter of 2018 at river Aurajoki in Turku and has since performed at Titanik Galeria Turku, Saarländische Galerie – Europäisches Kunstforum e.V, ausland Berlin, konnektor – Forum für Künste Hannover, Zwitschermaschine Berlin, Zönotéka and projektraum alte feuerwache in Friedrichshain.
"Rumbled the torture of self-giving,
in a vehement song,
in a roaring offering,
to the voracious mystery of silence."
VICENDA D’ACQUE (A TALE OF WATERS) is a new performance work by sound artist Lola Posani and dancer Erica Meucci. Taking the title from a poem by Antonia Pozzi, in Vicenda d’acque the everyday actions of wetting, rubbing and dripping water become sound cells, fragments of acoustic significances to be broken up and recomposed. The calm of a familiar event is contrasted with the tension of the return to music’s oldest roots, namely a sensory disruption. The action of dripping wet cloths creates new and unexpected rhythmic structures, allowing the audience to discover the acoustic pleasure of accidentality. The performance accommodates the banality and sacrality of the healing act while allowing the emergence of compositional intuition. Cleaning is intended as a ritual through its cyclical repetition, never turning into alienation, but becoming a state of deep connection between body, sound and material. In the live-performance, a dramaturgy is developed starting from the desire of the body seeking-for-care, and thus the body offers itself to the other.
