Event Details

Michaela takes our planet's sesmic data and converts it into electricity, which prompts a puppet-like response from the performers' bodies. While Rome Burns is a live musical performance, choreographed by the movement of the earth. The movements of performers in a string quartet are controlled by sonified seismic data via electric muscle stimulation (EMS). The work explores the ways in which data translates onto a performers’ body through the application of EMS to create a sonic environment, and how this can radicalize accepted notions of creative agency in sound/performance.
