SI SA CHE LE PECORE NON SONO CARNIVORE
(IT IS A KNOWN THING, THAT SHEEP ARE NOT CARNIVOURS)
Live soundrack for the film “Eight Chapters in Four Movements", 30min, 2016
Live sound: Teresa Cos
Remote live reading: Mela Boev
Produced with the support of Careof - Milan
On the occasion of Cinemoderno, a series of live performances and exhibitions curated by Martina Angelotti, Teresa Cos performed an emotional re-reading of her film Eight Chapters in Four Movements, intervening live on the original soundtrack with a new sound composition. The words of Henri Lefevbre’s Rhythmanalysis, which constitute the backbone of the original soundtrack, are substituted here with a text edited from the first chapter of Elias Canetti’s Crowds and Power, as read remotely (in the Italian version for this occasion) by the performer Mela Boev, via live conference call. The live composition of the soundtrack is created by sounds generated by the immediate contact of the artist’s body, voice and percussions with the microphone and reiterated in loops.
