‘Sisyphus of the Ear’
Percussion, electronics and film
Paulo C. Chagas (music)
Johannes Birringer (film)
Performed by Thierry Miroglio
The music of percussion instruments creates a powerful scenario of an imaginative journey of inner concussions and tremors. The instrumentalist is renowned soloist Thierry Miroglio.
A near-silent film – with an electronically augmented soundtrack of breath, moving stones, and speech sounds, deconstructed and distorted from the poem ‘Zang Tumb Tumb’ by the futurist artist Marinetti – is driven invisibly by the musician’s gestures which sustain and channel this audio-visual composition. This performance represents the second collaboration between composer Paulo C. Chagas and media choreographer Johannes Birringer.
Their first digital oratorio, Corpo, Carne e Espírito, had its world premiere at the Klauss Vianna Theatre, Belo Horizonte, Brasil during the FIT-BH Festival 2008
