A duet (virtually)
vocal improvisation

performed by Emmanuelle Waeckerlé, Sebastian Lexer and other guests.

A duet (virtually) is one of the outcomes of VINST, an ongoing research project exploring the body as language and the interplay between the real and the virtual. The work consists of an improvised dialogue between a voice and its avatar.

The whole project is inspired by Deleuze and Guattari who wrote in How do you make yourself a body without organs; “ ... Dismantling the organism has never meant killing yourself, but rather opening the body to connections… The BwO is desire; it is that which one desires and by which one desires.”

In this proposed duet between my voice and VINST played by guest players, we do infiltrate each others space, thus bridging for a moment the gap between real and virtual world.
