Double Blind (love) documentation by Curt Cloninger

Documentation of  Double Blind (Love) by Curt Cloninger.

Some thoughts on attempting to archiving a counfounded time:
Text wriiten by Curt Cloninger on the NetBehaviour list.

“My video documentation winds up being higher fidelity and more
intentionally synchronized than the original performance. There are
all sorts of very strange questions that arise in terms of the
synchronization. If I synch up Annie’s audio track from France with
the background arrival of her audio in the US, is that a “correct”
synchronization, or am I re-ordering the flow of time after the fact?
As I have been trying to synch everything up, sometimes the “arrival”
of Annie’s sound in my US audio will come before the “launch” of her
sound in the France audio — a kind of impossible, prophetic
re-rendering of time. Read the rest of this entry »

If you want to listen to and watch the whole 264 minutes long performance please write to Annie or Curt.

Interesting and affecting convergence of the performative work Curt Cloninger has been doing of late with the strange, wonderful & categorisation denying oeuvre of Annie Abrahams.

Performance d’Annie Abrahams et de Curt Cloninger


Dimanche 29 November
18h Living Room, Montpellier, France
0PM Blackmountain College Museum + Arts Centre, Asheville, USA
Direct live streaming

Durée indéterminée

English text at the bottom.

Un jour (que se sera-t-il passé ?) un long-voyeur abandonnera son segment, s’engagera sur une étroite passerelle au-dessus du gouffre noir, partira sur la ligne de fuite, ayant cassé sa lunette, à la rencontre d’un double aveugle qui s’avance à l’autre bout.” Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, Mille plateaux. P247

Par répétition vous pouvez augmenter la chance que votre choix à vous résonne jusqu’aux frontières du réseau, mais vous prenez aussi le risque de faire bousculer le paysage, jusqu’à maintenant plein de surprises dans celui d’un désert monotone.”

Annie Abrahams à Montpellier et Curt Cloninger à Asheville chanterons en direct pour une durée indéterminée “love”, “love”,  “love”[1], l’un à l’autre comme un genre de duet pop.

[1] U2 song “Until the End of the World” is sung by Judas to Jesus.
