Performance (live generative sound & movement),
Amongst the leftovers,
my home pushed to the city’s periphery,
with the building waste support materials,
servants to the glass towers --
the soft, the plastic, the malleable, the unwanted.
A labour of reconfiguration,
of bodies and hierarchies,
the battle between nature and culture,
the opaque and the pure, the black, the white and everything in between,
the perceived passives in the way of progress.
A labour of love
in the most unromantic meaning of the word,
romance can only be equated with privilege
possibly was always,
rebuilding and reshaping
this damaged ecological landscape,
the landscape rebuilding and reshaping
our vulnerable bodies & communities.
We find communion in the sonic,
regardless of the dominant culture’s will to divide.
Machines, humans, nature-life
ambiently mixing in an eternal
indeterminate performative set.
Proofs of their continuity,
proofs of their interdependency,
extrapolated into alternative spaces of becoming.
