This piece is a sound meditation on impact of water; how sounds of water affect humans, and how human sound effect the aquatic ecosystem.
Using interviews, field recordings and archive footage (including from GM’s ‘Futurama’ exhibit of the New York World Fair of 1939), Bodies of Water looks at how we evolve and progress, and whether the tide of development we’ve been sold is actually taking us toward a destination we want to arrive at.
Produced and mixed by Laura Irving (Laurairving.co.uk). Mastered by Jean Paul DuBock.
Departing from the reading and performing experience of PO-EX, an ongoing archive of portuguese experimental poetry, this piece explores the mouth and tongue organs as sound tool to engage in an unstable balance between pre-verbal forms and collapsing discursive fragments which bring forward the interstices of language, all with a somehow black humour approach. Portuguese spoken only.
Nuno Marques Pinto is a multidisciplinary artist. He works on theatre, performance and painting, combining these tools to build a singular voice. His work shares a reflection on language and sound and aims to question or highlight the mecanisms of control in contemporany speech.
