Live coded audio piece — Their solidity is mere illusion (2020–2021)
A live coded audio piece performed at EYE Filmmuseum in June, 2021.
The project explores the nomadic qualities of language: nomadic in the sense that the recorded voices exhibit no desire for fixity and authority.
All demonstrate the in-between-ness of languages. Where is language? Where does it lie in the body? In our mother tongues, our father lands?
The words together form rhythmic soundscapes, controlled through code — it takes parts of words, repeats, blends together.
Words by: Ágota Kristóf, Victor Hugo, Emine Özdamar, Trinh T. Minh-hà, Jenny Hval, Google translate and myself.
