SYNTHETIC SOPHISMSPRINT THIS PAGE
Testing reductions with a penchant for denotative perfection and maximum of synthesis: not necessarily false, but necessarily insufficient. There is nothing else but sound.
Following essentialization methods, speech is reduced to intonation, revealing the relation between content, sound and affect within speech. What is challenged is the notion that music is not semantically charged*.
The relation between rhythm and knowledge assimilation as conveyed by studies on musicality of speech sets the premises of an environment where sound is performing speech and intonation has autonomous meaning.
Working within the confines of this environment means testing perspectives on various connections between memory and sound (especially rhythm) as mediated by movement.
The project was initiated within the context of Black Hyperbox (workframe addressing the grey language negotiated between conceptual and performative strategies pertaining to the white cube and the black box, initiated by artists Florin Flueraş and Alina Popa and hosted by The National Dance Center in Bucharest).
