voices. breath. bodies. sounds. memories.
first with irena tomažin aka iT from ljubljana, performing two of her pieces – "mouth sounds for heart beats" and "my two bodies are a buddy":
"[…] ..it’s natural that every time the voice fades away with an exhale… that it disappears… it’s natural that the voices passes in and out of silence, that it holds onto, joins, disjoins with its opposite, that it exists with the opposite… its time exists and extends over the time of compressing the air out … when the air is pressed out, the voice is too…even when sipping air, it comes out as smothered creaking…the voice pushes itself against silence…its duration is between an inhale and an exhale… in between, it is cut off, interrupted, it breaks… it immerses itself in an inhale only to exhale… the unnatural is being born and is dying." [I.T.]
afterwards with music from an archive lost, presented by milos vojtechovsky and stanislav abraham from taz lemurie, prague:
"[…] Electricity and amplified sound of the human voice transformed deeply the social, psychological and political context of the human discourse. Certain traces of totalitarianism are imbedded in almost every bit of broadcasted and transformed voice. The collage combines different samples of voices, speaking via telephone, found on the internet with ambient sounds, recorded in Prague, Wroclaw, Muenster and Kassel." [M.V.]
