The starting point is a series of “sound” dances proposed by the dance students: voices, body percussion, slides, steps,… Then, the microphones recorded the dancers’ movements at different heights (micro contact, ambient stereo microphone and proximity stereo microphone).
The selected extracts were played in the multimedia creation software of Pure Data. A random and mastered arrangement that follows rhythmic intentions so that this sound piece can be danced again.
A composition of movements based on a choreographic sound writing. An invisible choreography.

2. The Desire Of My Heart by Manja Ristić. (RadioZero).
Where does it come from? The impulse, plucking my neural plexus, leaving behind open doors for the algorithm of consciousness to inscribe the new path. Memories compressed in cells’ membranes, wriggle, dissolve, combust and ripen. Nothing remains in your name* until paths are cleared and psyche’s sediment is purged.
The Desire of My Heart is a collection of intimate interventions extracted from my daily life and observations of my immediate environment from the perspective of transcendental attuning. On the trace of early 20th century esoteric practices of automatic painting and writing, I build a meta narrative in three stages, using field recordings, sonification and improvisation on amplified objects, exploring and manipulating basic frequencies from electrical fields.
