wonderwerp “Organic interferences”

Spring is coming altering our hormones, nerves, blood…wonderwerp welcomes it interfering with the body, either creating after images in our retinas, playing music with the skin or challenging the brain waves of a butoh dancer to drive the performance. It will take place on Thursday 29th March (20.30h 3!) @ Studio Loos (Constant Rebequeplein 20, Den Haag) presenting:

An arrangement of tube lights is set up in a dark room according to its architectural conditions. The lights are set up in such a way that they create an ambiguous impression of a two dimensional structure and a three dimensional form. The change between different impressions is triggered by flickering of the light which leaves afterimages on the spectator’s retina.
The tube lights provide the source material for their sonic counterpart which creates immersive sonic textures.

Fragmentation by Alberto Novello explores the fragmentation of personality of the modern man. Exposed to aggressive stimulation and overwhelming data streams, he must make important choices to follow a rational “mind path” while his time quickly runs out. The performer wears an electro- encephalographic headset which detects his mind activity. The analysis of its output reveals the power of the performer’s three thoughts which are connected to forward movement, turn left, and turn right in the virtual maze projected on the floor. Despite the distracting external forces, embodied by the glitchy sound and flickering visuals, the performer must remain paradoxically calm to generate the correct states of mind that let him navigate his way out of the maze. Every time the performer passes a wall, getting closer to the exit, and a new stochastic musical scene is triggered. The time and structure of the composition is thus entirely determined by the choices and concentration of the performer. Emmanuel Elias Flore – Visuals. Honza Svasek – Butoh dance, EEG mind control. http://dindisalvadi.free.fr/

Integration.04 by Dieter Vandoren Preview of the forthcoming performance in Dieter’s Integration series. In Integration.04 he takes the audience on a trip in an immersive optophonic world. Light (opto) and sound (phonic) are two components of one layered spatial architecture. The
performer’s body is the third. Body, light and sound entangle in a complex interaction, inspired by the deep connection between an acoustic musician and his instrument: the interplay of biologic skin, muscles and bones and the mechanical vibrations, dampings and resonances entailing the audible vibrations.
By applying this integration to the electronic instrument the audience becomes aware of the bodily, and by extension the mental intention of the performer in the act of creation. The combination of the immersive optophonic shapes and the bodily effort to achieve them turn it into a fascinating trip through an abstract – though equally human – world http://dietervandoren.net
