C2M1 - spectacle + rencontre

C2M1 is a “media performance” exploring written and coded communication, from the invention of writing to mobile phone texting by way of printing technologies.

The question raised by C2M1 is the following: what is the direct influence of new technologies on language?

In order to provide an answer, C2M1 is conceived around the presence of a screen as well as several technological devices featured on the stage, such as telephones, a tape recorder, an electrophone, etc.

On this stage, two performers (Siegfried Canto, musician, and Magali Desbazeille, visual artist), will make a point of using these communication devices in unexpected ways: the musician will use them as tools for musical improvisation, while the artist will see them as sources of real or fictional memories, belonging to humanity as a whole or herself alone…

History blends in the present while we try to envision a future, as obsolete technologies curiously compare to new means of communication.

These sound tools are gradually given control over the performers’ observations, hypotheses and fictions, until they become autonomous and automated.

A meeting with the artists is scheduled the same day (in the framework of the european project Espace(s) Son(s) Hainaut(s)).
