Victoria Polti: Noises


Noises is a performance based on the use of interfaces and sound recordings, allowing for acoustic modifications in real time. In searching for tonality and corporeal sonority as a perceptual territory, Noises challenges listening as a way of embodying sound. It plays with the borders between what is seen and heard as a counterpoint to discursive registers.
