12 Hours of Sound
Lionel Dentan, Gold&Silver, Pluggy, Hemant Sreekumar
Venue: Sadhana dell Arte
Time: 10:00 – 22:00
The 7 is an intensive 7-hour long performance that aims to reveal the nature and dimensions of space through sound, rooted in the various mystical and philosophical meanings of the number 7.
Nature Morte is a 45 minute performance which re-looks at the old perception dichotomy, “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” with reference to the ‘silent nature’ of the Big Bang.
This is a fantasy composition which dwells on the discrepancy that, though common conceptions of the ‘Big Bang’ tend to imagine a burst like an explosion, usually associated with a ‘BOOM’ sound, it is also plausible that the ‘Big Bang’ was a silent event, given that there was no atmosphere for acoustics to work and it was trillions of years before anyone or anything could exist, which was capable of hearing. This then, posits an interesting dichotomy.
The proposed performance is the in-process version in a series of algorithms Hemant has designed in the last 4 years, which have been exploring Still Life — still nature / still places – where time treads slowly, almost like an endless series of floating points between two milliseconds.
These have mostly existed as installations of infinite length that organically ‘perform’ within a certain set of trivial stochastic rules & very recently as an excerpt for a techno label.
