Any sound_situation where we accord attention becomes automatically musical. Intention is dominant.
Trace presents: "Where the language might be born "
(impressionistic full_coloured sound_picture)
Since April 1999 I have been involved in experimental sound_workshops with autistic children and children with learning
disabilities (between 3 - 10 years of physical age) in La Chanterelle School in Brussels in Belgium. My research / practice
are focused on perception as the main factor determining our relationship with reality. Our perception of the surrounding
world consequently influences our behaviour.
Change of perception > change of interest [including system of values] > impact on behaviour >
> influence on relation with outside world > change (re_modulation) of reality
Impressions evoked by sound_workshops interacts with my personal work as a composer, creating direct confrontation.
This confrontation became a dialogue, questioning the fundamental nature of communication beyond form,
approaching the basic energetic relationship without references, rejecting the experiences of established language
as a form of communication and re_building another 'language" closer to unspeakable co_existence, closer to the parallel
consonance based on mutual careful listening. Through the creation of a personal language, we can attempt to approach
each other's worlds gently, without destroying them through ignorance, without imposing our own modes of communication.
What is the aim of communication? I am searching for situations which might stimulate the desire to communicate,
in a co_existentional sense - being together - where creation is the spontaneous result of such a situation.
The aesthetics of language becomes a direct consequence of communication.
