Mariana Carvalho and Mitchell Keaney: Live-streamed performance

12.02.21 18:30 to
12.02.21 19:30
Format: performance
Mariana Carvalho and Mitchell Keaney explore the resonant spaces of the body, human voice, water and synthesizer as one. They improvise with contact microphones to externalize the inner movements of their bodies, a hydrophone to amplify the motion of water and voice inside a large cooking pot (i.e. the body) and a modular synthesizer. Machine, natural elements, flesh and bones, sound in organized rhythm, repeated patterns, muffled textures, bubbles and slightly chaotic gestures, combining organic and inorganic. This event will be live-streamed from SoundsAbout on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/udkberlin_sounds
