Resonating Landscapes is a performance by Francis Sosta and Florence
‘Because when I play something in the present, then it’s delayed and comes back in the future. But when it comes back in the future, I’m dealing with the past, and also playing again in the present, anticipating the future. So that’s expanding time. That’s the idea there. It’s not about just one delay, it’s about a whole lot of them.’
(Pauline Oliveros, in: Deep Listening: A Composer’s Sound Practice)
Circles. Repetitions. Layers. Voices. In-Visible Forces.
How can we extend the notion of voice to space? How can we give voice to the ephemeral? This research is about immateriality and evaporation, inviting the voice to expand the limits of the body and reach for the space outside of our flesh. It’s the troubled mesh that exists between humans, non-human material and beings, and systems of reproduction.
