“Une musique intérieure (Conduct, Language, Voice, Inner Ears)” at Tabakalera, Donostia / San Sebastián


The Exhibition “Une musique intérieure” questions our conduct, our language, and our voice as a single would the balance of our internal ear as devices that stabilise our intimate connection with the outside the house environment. The exhibition “Une musique intérieure” (Inner Audio) is the new framework for the score Solo &#8211 Mother nature Review Notes &#8211 1969-2019 [Athens Version] created and done in collaboration with Georgia Sagri, Delia Gonzalez and Serapis Maritime in early summer months 2021. This rating was composed in Greece by using freely accessible improvisation rites (prose guidelines) exercising the open up useful resource basic principle of the 1960s English collective, The Scratch Orchestra. The define of the exhibition’s ground plan at the Hot Wheels gallery in Athens, where by this perform was to start with exhibited, is superimposed onto the Tabakalera place. Also, the outfits developed by Serapis Maritime for the performance is printed with images from the Greek gallery and verbal recommendations of the rites. Solo &#8211 Nature Review Notes &#8211 1969-2019 [Athens Version] 2021 seeks to interrogate the romance among the individual and the collective. The rating aims to collect the activation of distinctive rites by the apparel worn by one particular man or woman (a solo performer) who animates the recommendations, thus shifting the development of the social entire body onto the somatic formation of the individual. On the other hand, the viewers (a collective) is then placed in free of charge circulation close to this activation so that the group is much more afflicted in its energetic listening or passive conduct. The exhibition at Tabakalera calls  on the scores of composers who have been pioneers in their attention to contexts, this kind of as Alvin Lucier (Chambers, 1968), Pauline Oliveros (Deep Listening, 1989), and Milan Adamčiak (Floor scores, 1967). As Erik Satie by now emphasised in his Musiques d&#8217ameublement (Carrelage phonique, 1917), interiority is colonised by social guidelines. It is the political amount of determinism and the instrumental character—in the double feeling of musical instrument and software of manipulation— that artists, such as regional artist Amable Arias or a new generation of artists these types of as Eva Barto, Mattin, Matthieu Saladin, and Cally Spooner, specify in this exhibition which is provided to the public as a chamber music live performance.
