Sound and Movement

Motivation:

In conventional performance, sound and movement exist as separate layers. Often the sounds created by the performers are filtered out by the audience’s ears, like breathing, stepping, falling, etc., and the performers do not regard the sounds that they create as part of the work. I tried to remove this separation while exploring alternative forms of performance. I am not a sound artist, but a performance artist exploring sound art for my movement in the realm of sound Art.

As I understand, Sound Art requires a strong sense of composition, like music. However, it is not a language, like music, which is available primarily to those familiar with its conventions and vocabularies; rather, it is available to anyone with the intention to listen.  

Me Entiendes (https://vimeo.com/328190218) was my first attempt to use sounds generated by my dance movement as part of the content of my performance.
