Every Move a Sound - On the Intricacies of Memory is a dance concert and a music choreography exploring the notions of trace and memory.
We move and sound. We wear sound and motion sensors.
Movements and sounds are joined and recorded as composite traces. Continuously.
Everybody yarns their sonic filament retractable by anybody. Anytime. Retracing is resounding is reinscribing. One’s own or another’s trace. Inevitably. We suffuse the performance space with remnants of our actions. This is how the past remains with us. Forever. Every action constraining the future. Becoming an obstacle or be turned into a potential. The denser the traces, the harder it becomes to read them.
In this environment we engage in extended and repetitive improvisatory processes, fathoming the potential of the collective and ambient instrument we are developing for years now, aiming at establishing a performance practice in which movement and sound can coexist without exploiting or betraying each other.
A performance by Gerhard Eckel, Alexander Gottfarb, Anna Nowak, David Pirrò.
