APPARENT SILENCE OF TINGUELY´S AQUATIC MACHINES

Registro acotado en video y sonido de performance homónima con duración de 60'00'' realizada en la Fuente Tinguely, Basel, Suiza.
La obra es en Video como registro de la performance a modo de concierto dado con los sonidos en crudo que producen las esculturas-máquinas de Jean Tinguely de bajo del agua De la Fuente ubicada en la plaza del pueblo en Basilea. Mediante un sistema de radio y auriculares inhalambricos con la idea de experienciar un organismo cuerpo plural en estado de movimiento y de mutación.

Durante la acción ingreso a la Fuente vestida con un traje impermeable, un sistema de señal de radio incorporado dentro del traje y un Hidrófono (micrófono para agua), que permite el envío en vivo de la señal de audio en directo y en crudo con los sonidos que se producen debajo del agua de la Fuente, generados por los mecanismos en funcionamiento de las esculturas cinéticas en la densidad del agua. La señal es recibida por auriculares inalámbricos que entrego a la audiencia buscando explorar otro modo de percibir, experimentar, habitar y contemplar el entorno aparente. Con los movimientos de mi cuerpo y mi traslación busco entrar en comunicación con las esculturas-máquinas en un intento de escuchar sus voces internas, con una idea de convertirme en una escultura cinética más dentro de la Fuente y del paisaje, y funcionar como puente entre su sistema acuático y el sistema de escucha de la audiencia fuera de la Fuente. 

 

*In-situ, la performance fue dada como una suerte de concierto, donde los sonidos se presentaban con musicalidad y patrones rítmicos de los géneros Techno, voces y ruidismo.

Video and sound recording of the homonymous performance with a duration of 60'00'' made at the Tinguely Fountain, Basel, Switzerland.

The work is a video recording of the performance as a concert given with the raw sounds produced by Jean Tinguely's underwater sculpture-machines of the Fountain located in the town square in Basel. Through a radio system and wireless headphones with the idea of experiencing a plural body organism in a state of movement and mutation.

 

During the action I enter the Fountain dressed with a waterproof suit, a radio signal system incorporated inside the suit and a Hydrophone (microphone for water), which allows sending live and raw audio signal with the sounds that are produced under the water of the Fountain, generated by the mechanisms in operation of the kinetic sculptures in the density of the water. The signal is received by wireless headphones that I deliver to the audience seeking to explore another way of perceiving, experiencing, inhabiting and contemplating the apparent environment. With the movements of my body and my translation I seek to enter into communication with the sculpture-machines in an attempt to listen to their inner voices, with the idea of becoming one more kinetic sculpture within the Fountain and the landscape, and to function as a bridge between their aquatic system and the listening system of the audience outside the Fountain. 

*In-situ, the performance was given as a sort of concert, where the sounds were presented with musicality and rhythmic patterns of the techno genre, voices and noise.
