Distant Movements
explorer ensemble la possibilité d’une expérience de danse devant un écran
Durée 15 min.
Guidé par Muriel, Daniel et Annie en français et en anglais.
Si vous ne parlez que l’une de ces langues, vous pouvez rester dans votre propre mouvement jusqu’à ce que vous compreniez à nouveau les invitations.
Nous voulons susciter un état de conscience propice à danser ensemble en ligne. Nous cherchons à développer un regard intérieur qui s’ouvre sur une danse en résonance. Mais en même temps nous allons apprendre une qualité d’écoute qui permet de continuer quand on ne comprend pas. Nous danserons ensemble.

Yeux fermés. Attentifs au mouvement intérieur.

Distant Movements
exploring together the possibility to experience dance in front of a screen
Duration 15 min.
Guided by Muriel, Daniel and Annie in French and English.
If you only speak one of these languages you can stay in your own movement until you understand the guidance again. We not only want to arouse a state of consciousness favorable for dancing together online; for developping an inner gaze that opens to a dance in resonance, but we will also learn to listen to something we don’t understand. We will dance together.
Eyes closed. Attentive to interior movement.

Utterings – soundperformance for audioblast #8

On the 22nd of February 16h30 Paris time during the festival Audioblast #8, Utterings sera diffusé en direct en ligne et sur un système de spatialisation radiophonique installé à la Plateforme Intermédia, 4 Boulevard Léon Bureau, 44200 Nantes. Organisation APO-33.
Online listen here: Concerts en ligne. 22-23/02 2020.

Utterings is a project by Annie Abrahams (FR) and Daniel Pinheiro (PRT) with Constança Carvalho Homem (PRT), Curt Cloninger (US), Nerina Cocchi (BE) and Derek Piotr (US) as invited artists and collaborators.
Technical assistance: Jan de Weille.
Since this event Utterings is a band.

Utterings is a sound-only networked performance experiment where six artists commit to a 30 min long exchange across distance. The artists gather online and, while blindfolded, they engage in utterings as communication, building on solo’s, duo’s, chorals and silence, creating an on the fly “new” language, that forwards attention, trust and affects above rationality. Six sound streams (no instruments used) are interlaced and entangled in one single polyphonic composition shared live in the audioblast program. The protocol for this performance will be written collectively in the week before the performance.

Protocol and references for Utterings here: https://annuel2.framapad.org/p/r.d6b50a58404bb8269f53ffe00d5a14ff (Pauline Oliveros, Mikhail Bakhtin, Andrei Bely, Maree Cunnington, Michel De Certeau, Andrea Olsen, Meredith Monk, Maurizio Lazzarato and the bible.)

testing blindfolds

As an individual it is very difficult to address the problems related to all kind of global emissions. Of course you can act privately, but we need more.
Utterings is a collaborative attempt to go beyond the borders and closures created by languages, opening up and transgressing these in a performance that probes meaning through pre-language communication and formerly un-inhabited expressions.
Communication not as transmission of information, ruled by a code or abstract conventions, but connected with affection and attention will counter data imperialism and rationalist exploitation.

how to go beyond glossolalie? what will be the intention? is attunement enough? if we manage to avoid meaning we may discover something
Martine Neddam: Glossolalia is ‘dancing with words’. Dance first, before moving beyond dancing.
Igor Stromajer: An extremely intriguing concept. Who knows, perhaps you don’t even have to go beyond glossolalia. If glossolalia is done “right”, it already goes beyond … itself.

Mikhail Bakhtin has a posse!

Audioblast is a festival de création sonore utilisant le réseau comme lieu de diffusion, il se compose de nombreuses pratiques audio en réseau, de musique expérimentale, drone, noise, field recordings, poésie sonore, électroniques et musiques contemporaines.

Curt Cloninger is an artist, writer, and Associate Professor of New Media at the University of North Carolina Asheville (US). His art has been featured in the New York Times and at museums, galleries, and festivals from Korea to Brazil. His fifth book, “Some Ways of Making Nothing: Apophatic Apparatuses in Contemporary Art,” is forthcoming from Punctum Books as part of Erin Manning and Brian Massumi’s 3Ecologies Immediations series. His writing and art may be accessed at lab404.com, playdamage.org, and deepyoung.org.

Nerina Cocchi is an Italian theatre artist and translator based in Brussels, Belgium. A 2019 recipient of Bourse Claude Etienne, a fellowship for emerging Belgian playwrights, she took part in the Arctic Circle Residency and sailed in the Arctic region in 2019.

Derek Piotr (b. 1991) is a Poland-born producer and composer based in New England, whose work focuses primarily on the human voice. His work covers genres as diverse as glitch, leftfield pop, chamber, dance, and drone; and is primarily concerned with tenderness, fragility, beauty and brutality. derekpiotr.com

Constança Carvalho Homem studied Modern Languages and Literatures at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Porto. She completed her Masters in Text and Performance Studies with Distinction at King’s College London and RADA.

Porto-based, she works as translator, dramaturg, performer and director. Radio plays and improvised music are two major interests. Of her recent collaborations, she’d highlight 2019’s Hysteria

Mouvements à Distance – Biennale Lyon – 14 déc.

Samedi 14 décembre 14h-16h30, Expériences Mouvements à Distance et Dronards dans le cadre du
Séminaire IMPEC.* – Interactions Multimodales Par ECran.
Ancienne Usine Fagor,
15e Biennale d’art contemporain de Lyon.

affiche Présences Numériques

Mouvements à Distance, conçue pour 12 participants munis de leurs smartphones et oreilettes/casque dure 10 minutes. Dispersé.e.s dans l’espace (sur le lieu du séminaire, mais aussi plus largement en ligne), connecté.e.s via le réseau à une interface de téléconférence ordinaire, les particpant.e.s ferment les yeux et se laissent guider par une voix dans une exercice de mouvement partagé.
Leurs téléphones mobiles fonctionnent comme des extensions photosensibles de leurs mains et produisent, projetées sur un écran, une seule image. Les yeux fermés, les particpant.e.s se concentrent sur leur corps et ne contrôlent plus leur image. Celle-ci devient du coup la trace directe de leur vécu, une transposition de leur mouvement en résonance avec les autres.
Quelques personnes de l’audience sur place peuvent participer à l’expérience, ainsi que quelques personnes en ligne.

Mouvements à Distance est un satellite du projet Distant Movements avec Muriel Piqué et Daniel Pinheiro.

* Le séminaire mensuel IMPEC, dirigé par Christine Develotte, accueille des collègues de différentes disciplines : sciences du langage, sciences de l’éducation, sciences cognitives, sciences de l’information et de la communication, psychologie, sociologie et des doctorants qui centrent leur objet de recherche sur les interactions par écran.

Distant Feeling(s) #7, Dec 7th. 2019 – archives

screen capture of Distant Feeling(s) #7

After the performance of Dec. the 7th Daniel Pinheiro formulated some interesting thoughts on the project itself since its origin in 2015: https://landproject.tumblr.com/post/189710009054/df7

It is not a proposition for a revolution nor a resolution for an evident relational crisis, it is an experience on connectivity and its fundamentals.

Distant Feeling(s) #7: Our annual re-activation of Distant Feeling(s)*.
Once again we shared time together, online, without speaking and with our eyes closed.

Distant Feeling(s) #7 happened through a video-conferencing session in zoom** on Saturday Dec. 7th 6:00 – 6:15 PM GMT+1 (Paris time).

Online.
Open to all.
Duration 15 min.

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 Feeling(s) is a project by Annie Abrahams, Lisa Parra and Daniel Pinheiro. More information bram.org/distantF and landproject.tumblr.com

** If you want to join you need to install the zoom application on your device. Free download from https://zoom.us/download#client_4meeting and connect to 5 min before the performance starts.
