Within the project POST ELETTRONICA
curated by Valentina Gensini and Letizia Renzini
In tribute to John Cage, the project POST ELETTRONICA investigates territories of “post-electronic” experimentation revealing Cage’s contemporary inheritance and presenting artists who share a dramatic and gestural use of new technologies. Hybrid works that combine music, video, performance, sculpture, sound, noise become vocabularies of a composite language in which the management of advanced software is combined with the artifact in an attempt to dissolve the conceptual approach towards the involvement of the viewer.
O Horizon is an improvised performance in which Theresa Wong invites members of the audience to bring objects of any kind (common or otherwise) as instruments for her sound making. She will combine these objects along with cello and voice to perform a ritual that brings awareness into the sensual microcosm of everyday materials while tapping into the fantastic qualities within them. O Horizon refers to the layer of a forest floor where decomposition occurs. In this nutrient rich area, fallen materials are transformed into new ones, undergoing a slow yet powerful process of metamorphosis.
