'A SOUND MIND IN A SOUND BODY'
GREEK PHILOSOPHER THALES (MILETUS, 624 – 546 BC)
September 26 - October 1, 2022
Sonic Body Art imagines multidimensional properties of hearing: we learn about our bodies through different sound sources. Acoustic depth gives each body a special character and charm. This body full of vital organs united in one cohesive tissue speaks. The human body is deeply entangled in acoustic mysteries. Its ambiguity lies in restlessness, even during peaceful sleep. We will embark on an acoustic journey to our bodies. With the help of simple sensors, we can record the sounds of our bodies and the unmistakable acoustic signature of each of us. We play the rhythms and listen to the waves of still flesh and bone and our bodies react
The workshop is aimed at artists and performers with different backgrounds and levels of experience.
