“The Transmission”, 2016, performance, Gallerie de Portraits ENSAD Paris.

“The Transmission” is an attempt to create space by use of bodies and voices of five female performers.

The composition of vocal melodies results from instructions given to the team, and based on patterns and physical exercises. The back of each performer becomes a living sound-box which transfers the initial sound starting from the first singer who has received it from the vibration of this large embrace. The structure of this piece is inspired by ancient Pyrrhic war dances surviving in Pontos. The song, instead of lyrics, employs spontaneous vocal sounds built one upon the other.

 Performers: Balthazar Heisch, Louise Hallou, Karolin Meunier, Maria Louizou / City: Paris / Year: 2016
