Participants are invited to join, during 90 minutes, the members of the group in order to explore together dynamics of listening and improvising through voiced sound(s) as a means to weave a web of interrelated expressions in a communication system. The workshops will be guided and each one culminating in a 30minute public performance

Utterings is a networked performance and research group. Engaging in utterings as communication, they build on solo’s, duo’s, chorals and silence while blindfolded and connected at a distance, attempting to go beyond borders and closures created by language.

UTTERINGS is a networked performance and research group composed of Annie Abrahams (FR), Daniel Pinheiro (PT), Constança Carvalho Homem (PT), Curt Cloninger (US), Nerina Cocchi (BE) and Derek Piotr (US).

March 26, 17h30 – 18h00: Discussion with Annie Abrahams (Artist) and Helen Varley Jamieson (artist)
Before the First is a response to the many claims of online “firsts” in 2020. Annie Abrahams, Helen Varley Jamieson and Suzon Fuks aim to draw attention to the long and rich history of online performance, which stretches back to the earliest days of the internet. For some of the artists in Before the first, the performance shown was not their very first online performance. Many early works were never documented, or for other reasons later works have been used. Before the First is a brief glimpse of the diversity of online performance created before 2020. The video is only a very tiny sample of this field of creative work; it is a snapshot and provocation to further exploration of the field, rather than an historical record.

You can watch the recording of our presentation on youtube.

Distant FeelingS #8 – 2020 iteration.

At least 30 people participated in this yearly online ritual. In the video you can see only 25 of them. Sorry to those who thought to be able to watch themselves in the group of blind silent sentient people and can’t. Next we will do better.

Reactions:
Helen Varley Jamieson: very nice to be a part of it again :) – it seemed to be a lot noisier than previous times. someone was yawning a lot! :D & other restlessness … maybe it’s a sign of the difficult year everyone has had.
Heitor Alvelos: Thanks for this, the perfect way to welcome the Winter Solstice.
Alan Sondheim: this was wonderful and meaningful, and I had one odd reaction, the sounds reminded me of all the news stories about the hospitals here in the U.S. and abroad, about the ICU, intensive care units, many of the sounds were similar to me, and there was an odd air of both life and tragedy outside the meditation, an odd air of sadness.
i wonder if anyone has looked into the old work on ESP in relation to this…all the research done years ago on Extra-Sensory-Perception, people communicating through minds only. a lot of the research was discredited, but there’s some indication there might be something to it. (Annie: paranormale communicatie?)
Ienke Kastelein: With so many people participating it becomes more about the shared expanding (open) space and less about the relation.

Announcement image by Daniel Pinheiro. A combination of screenshots from the first confinement period (March 27 – Mai 8 2020.) in which the project was activated weekly on Friday’s at 4pm (GMT+1).

Distant Feeling(s) #8
Sunday Dec. 20 18h CET.
Duration 15 min.
Online. Open to all.
Eyes closed. No talking.
(please use headphones and have sound and video on)

In a year such as 2020 continuing to activate the yearly reconnection of Distant Feelings, through zoom, seems natural, pertinent and more than ever an act of resilience to deal with the lack, the disconnection and the complexity of the worldlessness* the ‘world’ was precipitated into.  
The invitation is open all interested to enter this space, into a silent, yet sentient, relational encounter

A telematic embrace where nothing seems to happen and where the lack of action is precisely its potential for fighting alienation. We are performing absentia within the network, while the network is functioning.
We research togetherness through the Internet as a way to counter its fallacy which drives the (im)possibility of collective strength. Can we find novelty in an already established system, and act from within, towards (an)other purpose(s).

Distant Feelings is a project run by Annie Abrahams and Daniel Pinheiro.
