TELEMATIC SONIC PERFORMANCES
My work with Telematic Sonic Performances (2012 - present) has explored the ‘in-between’ sonic space that exists within the context of migration, through Deep Listening practice and improvisatory performances on the Internet, in order to expand the perceived sonic spaces that inform the migratory experience. I have consolidated this work through INTIMAL exploring alternative forms of embodied sense of place and sense of presence (tele-presence) in contexts of geographic dislocation. With my latest performance VERTICES, each improviser explores and creates her/his own interface to communicate with others in dream like narratives, expanding it through the virtual platform.
Sounding Underground is a virtual environment that invites users to interact with the soundscapes of three underground public transport systems: London, Paris and México City. Commuters’ memories and imaginations are represented in sounds and images that have been selected by volunteer commuters through an ethnographic process.
I received funding from The Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship 2007-2009, and the support of the Institute of Creative Technologies - IOCT, at De Montfort University for the research that gave birth to this work.
