El Poema de la Fábrica Cósmica - Trailer
11 November, 2020 / Read time: 2 minutes
This experimental performance took place in different parts of the world where the natural and technological collide, as part of the Simetría Residency (CERN, ALMA and ESO). Recordings and listening sessions were hosted at CERN in the LHC ALICE Detector in Switzerland, the ALMA Observatory OSF, in the Atacama Desert in Chile, and Paranal Observatory, ESO, in the Atacama Desert in Chile.
This sonic rite consists of a listening session of the performance of a place, guided by the *PARACANTORA, a sonic device that acts as a medium between worlds. This traveling sculpture becomes a parasite of the place and diffuses the chant of the apparently silent agents around us. It is a transductive device that contains environmental sensors that are mapped in real-time into different sounds (synthesizers, samples, textures, words, and other voices) that create a musical performance of the place, unveiling the performativity of non-human agents on the environment and that there is no such thing as empty space.
In places where the natural and technological collide there are particular disturbances that are transduced by this parasitic medium to create a sonic poem that is imprinted in our collective material memory and sensitizes us through the aural. Shake your material existence, and let this parasitic medium guide you through a concert of a specific moment in space and time.
