Liquid State of Being: LiquidRoom#7

If you ever wondered if, and how, it would be if your senses would feel+perceive the stimulating triggers in inverted way… wonder no more!

Right from the start, unnoticeably yet convincingly, soft beating of a tam-tam will get your heart, body and being into the right frequency, groove and mood…

Your ears, and eyes, will be further welcomed and gradually awoken through a “simple” singular movement, on a “simple” triangle, growing thousands of sounds from it…

You will start seeing fire, but your eyes and vision of it will be triggered only by sound…
Your hearing the sound will be triggered and amplified by seeing the light and movement…
You will feel touched by, and submerged in, clear and murky waters, again just through sound…
You will see the physical movement as if it is a still image, and you will see still figures as moving, because of their sound and music…

You will experience, and re-experience, seeing and hearing in different ways then you have expected. You will feel through hearing and hear through seeing. You will utterly and purely enjoy, be trilled and excited with what is happening throughout the performance, and your senses even more so. And not only that you will not notice that the 180 minutes have passed, but your senses will be left craving for more, as if they have learned to feel in a new way. Through understanding and experiencing what other sense experience life like, you, your body and being will feel just a little bit (or a lot, really up to you) more in harmony with self… All with, and through, works by Ablinger, David, Hodkinson, Lucier, Monahan, Pesson, Sickle&Leguay, Schmid, Schubert, Sciarrino, Tenney…

And like almost every ICTUS ensemble Liquid Room (I guess special kudos to Tom Pauwels and Jean-Luc Plouvier are in order), this no.7 one, unmistakably called “Sound&Vision”, absolutely delivers!

So if you happen to be in Paris on June 10th, try not to miss it!  See for details here. And for full description/details about the performance, look out here.

*Liquid Room choosing your sit tip: upon entering the performance space, take a second to observe the set up. Upon carefully assessing all the more obvious performance areas (’cause, let’s face it – there will most likely be one or two unnoticeable performance positions), approximately position your self slightly off-centre, possibly with your back to the sound engineer area (sorry Alex Fostier). But still, be ready to feel like a sunflower… just… it is the sound who will turn you, and not the sun… so… you’ll sort of be a soundflower i guess… but that is anyway even more fun ^^.
