PERFORMANCE ︎

MÉTRON EXTENDED

Training session and concert

Idea, Direction and Performance by Fabrizio Saiu
Developed during an art residence  at PTL (Brescia - September 2020)
and TEMPO REALE  (Firenze - July 2021).

︎

Performance for an athlete-musician, 35 percussion cymbals and speech dispositor. The concert consists of a training session between sound action and art du déplacement. A vocal synthesis algorithm (Karen) intervenes on the modulations of the performer's gesture through sequences of cues and introductions, overlapping them, articulating a surreal, oracular, analytical and descriptive, pseudo-philosophical speech. It transforms the context of the action into a science fiction scenario whose protagonist is an astronaut, a boxer, a soldier, a monk or a musician or none of these.



STAGE PLAN



This is a performance designed to be produced in an enclosed, quiet space in unusual locations. 

The listening of the entire performance is done through headphones, in order to allow a privileged relationship between the individual user and the performer and reproduce, in a direct and almost tactile way, the sound sensation of the physical impact of the performer's body on the saucers, his breaths and his micro movements.

For a correct listening and viewing, it is strictly necessary that the audience is arranged around the performer at a distance of about 3/4 meters, arranged in several rows on the ground and standing.
