intent: explore as minimally as possible some embodied links between voice/noise/sound and equality
on National Equality Day, April 17, 2016
Array Space, 155 Walnut Ave, Toronto ON
- Xuan Ye and Michael Lynn created a superposition of short video film + live movement and clarinet improvisation
"My original motive to create the "Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while"
comes from my belief that equality is an utopian idea -- communication is never absolutely
equal through encoding and decoding messages. This is similar to how a musician interprets
a visual score, how human gestures associate with movements of squirrel." Xuan Ye
With links to Michael Lynn's videotaping and editing
- Live coding + movement + voice: Noiqouvdcseality: Ian Jarvis
- Improvised duet: Noiqouvdcseality: David Sait / Brian Abbott
- Radio Equals +++: Noiqouvdcseality: claude wittmann / Brian Abbott / Kayla Milmine-Abbott

"I believe that we learned something about "what is", something about the
unconscious beliefs that create sensations of equality and unequality,
and that we learned more when we dived into the intent than when we tried to be equal." claude
