Homage To The Mystery Guest. A Prequel
Live sound performance
Live sound performance for Faysal Mroueh's 'Birdland' exhibition by Panayiotis Mina and Faysal Mroueh. This is the third collaboration between the two, exploring the possibilities of improvisation. They set up situations in which the distribution of sonic elements rests on the real-time manipulation of technical parameters: an aural poetry between voice and machine, a sound design composed at the intersection of exchange and (co)entry into an indefinable space.
“It is a long trip. We are the only riders. So that is how we have come to know each other so well that the sound of his voice and his image flickering over the tape recorder are as familiar to me as the movement of my intestines the sound of my breathing the beating of my heart. Not that we love or even like each other. In fact murder is never out of my eyes when I look at him. And murder is never out of his eyes when he looks at me.” (William Burroughs, The Ticket That Exploded)
If The Guest is not found, no mystery is created / The Guest is composed of light and perspective / this is particularly important to create a virtual mystery / when a virtual mystery stops being a mere vacuum of data the voice is extremely attracted to the performance of the surfaces.
