f? ribeiro from brazil recorded their movements and dances in electromagnetic fields to create a radiophonic work following their songlines:
"'Radiodance Opus.01 'Y Do B?'' starts from the voice, the presence of the verb and the dance of electromagnetic fields to compose a body program of synaesthetic flexing of the body limits, it's listenings and gestures. In the metaphysical inversion of the body (udob), the representation of the clash of embodiment springs a question: why do we keep insisting on engineering the 'being'? Why do we still believe in artistic performance when it has no longer the power to update the world? We ask the listener to watch his body with utmost attention during the broadcast and dance." [F?R]
