Carnet de routes: following Blaise Cendrars in Brazil
ResumoCarnet de Routes includes the idea of travel first as a metaphor of the experience of the work. The motivation starts with the observation of the current practice of sound in the arts being still somehow a niche per se. The aim resides in pushing the sonic practice further by exploring the multimodal possibilities of sound and its plastic possibilities in relation to space, body and perception by mean of compositions, sound installations, performances, poetry and writings. It includes a visual and sensitive aspect of sound by way of performance where the author / composer leaves its responsibility to the audience, which in turn recompose the sound away from the loudspeaker. The material is reconfigured to explore the interrelations of all the media at disposal for the work itself. Therefore the work is not a final object per se, but the result of the addition leading in fineto the perception within the audience’s mind. It explores issues of serendipity, psychogeography, affect and embodiment (of someone else). Accordingly, sound may magnify situations and fields of possibilities beyond phenomenological considerations and not as a creator of ambience; rather, it is investigated towards philosophical and anthropological issues about interiority and exteriority. In May 2016 I arrived in Brazil and two days after, the president Dilma Rousseff was impeached. During the next three months protests in the streets, the words and writings from the streets slowly entered into my mind and works.
