Modulation One Dance Performance July 2, 2014

Modulation_one (live-digital dance and augmented sound) asks the dancers to imagine; to be present in the transfer of data; to engage with the mediated/digital as it appears and disappears. 


Modulation_one is the final practical study for Kerry Francksen's PhD and builds upon a recent and developing collaboration with composer Simon Atkinson, film-maker Laura McGregor and dance artist Jodie Davis. Over the past year they have been searching for a way to create environments where acousmatic sound, image and movement can be conceived of as a continually emerging process, where a more dynamic relationship arrives from an engagement in those thresholds in ‘the dimension of the emergent’ (Massumi 2012:34).

Forcucci in Berlin, Basel, Freiburg, Saillon

Doctoral student Luca Forcucci presented his work at numerous events in the first half of 2014:

  • Lecture at the Technical University of Berlin — January 30
  • Sound Installation at the House of Electronic Arts, Basel — Feb 26 - March 16
  • Artist's Talk at the International Symposium Border Sounds, Freiburg — Mar 21-22
  • Presentation of M(a)(e)rgin(g)s at the Zentrum Fuer Kunst und Urbanstik, Berlin — May 23. "Soundscapes from the city of Sao Paulo in Brazil have been recorded. The sound is deterritorialised, abstracted from its original ‘milieu’, reterritorialised and attached to the structure of the ephemeral construction built by Studio OSK at ZK/U Berlin. An imaginary territory emerges through the layering of Sao Paulo, Berlin and the structure itself: a sonic MoirĂ© pattern questioning borders."

He has an upcoming concert and seminar at Rencontres AME, Saillon — Aug 27-31, and a presentation at the Electroacoustic Music Studies conference in Berlin — Jun 12.
