Estman Radio Berlin (with Marinella Senatore)
Sound/performance, Insitu, Berlin, 2014  – collaboration with Irene Izquierdo
By invitation of Marinella Senatore I produced a sound piece that explored touch, which is soundless, on the radio. I invited Irene Izquierdo a long time collaborator from the Process Institute to join me. She had recently broken 5 ribs so we decided to focus on self-healing. We used our hands to navigate and prompt each others bodies with a contact mic, in an attempt to explore visions and sensations of the inner lives of our bodies. We employed a variety of other tools: xray analyses, prescriptions, medical diagnoses, rice cakes, iron pills, ukulele, xylophone and several books on Dorothy Iannone, and the menses cycle. We used objects (tools) from our lives. It was playful, improvised and intimate; it was as visually performative as it was audible. We were left with a genuine interest in how we can bring healing into our relationships and daily routines and how to make sense of the disconnection western medicine creates with our bodies.
