X Bells X-1
On the sidelines of Raymond Delepierre’s sound installation (X BELL X-1), Unfulfilleduo offers a performance based on the retroactive sound space, variations around feedback, increased / extended acoustics / Modified / generated by the architectural shapes and surfaces of this portion of the quai de la Sambre. They will reveal to the ears a history of archeology of the moment, the different sounds buried, the traces of the past, their harmonies. The megaphones were produced in the USA (N.Y.), Norway, France, Belgium, Germany, UK, Bulgaria, USSR, Japan. They have served in multiple military (USA), cultural, political and social events. They have spread the voices of world leaders, civil society people, music and songs of revolt and joy, speeches of peace, hatred and memory. All the diffusers are fixed to the facade of Quai 10.
Production Raymond Delepierre sustain by Transcultures
Raymond Delepierre (Brussels) has fostered a great curiosity about material of sound, his physical representation in an autonomous body, and his involvement in fields are as diverse as the performing arts, architecture, urban environment, research science, and visual arts. Keeper of the imaginary, he regularly questions the implication of the perception that each one of us has to face sound—this invisible and unthought medium. It is by composing from the sounds of simple objects and apparatuses of our daily life, that he affirms his wish for the sculpting of sound, through sound installations. He has an interest in aliveness, sound and its space of interactivity, sound as material/objects, archives, and sculptures. He organizes these, transforming and modifying them, to offer them an alternate function. He uses basic solutions to capture magnetic, electric, and airborne magnetic radiation, in order to formulate a sound identity that he cuts into sequences by the interaction of one event into another. The result is a written ‘evolutive’, moving sound sequence.
