More info follows shortly.
Residency Presentation of the Oceanographies Institute in Q-O2, Brussels
During the residency at Q-O2, Marialena Marouda will collaborate with composer Charlie Usher on the polyphonic performance of the Ocean Conversation scripts and scores. On the one hand, they will work on a compositional method for performing those conversations. Some of their questions are: When and how can speech transform into music and song? How can one play with this threshold? How can the musical relation between two voices be explored? And how can this constellation summon another -third- voice, namely, the one of the ocean, to which the speech refers? A rewriting of the conversations scripts in order to make their musicality more apparent is the second focus point of the residency. In this sense, the scripts of the Ocean Conversations will be transformed into musical scores for two voices.
