Galeria El
Resonances Festival

Performed by Michał Libera

An exploration of sound and architecture by the way of gradual switching-off of the technological systems essential to maintanance of a given venue. A process through which successive acoustical layers of machine-produced hum and buzz are gradually emptied from an architectural space conceived as a sound sculpture. The aim is to revert the existing environmental noise to a silence as free as possible from any residual sound or light.

Blackout dissects the ambient sounds pervasive throughout our lives - the random mass of blows and hums that fill the rooms at work and at home. This dynamic undressing allows the audience perception and understanding of the richness and invasiveness of sound of the separate components, often unnoticed, that coexist in a place: technologies of indoor comfort such as heating, ventilating cooling, lighting, elevators, sound systems, multimedia, beamers, servers etc, every single machine ceases to function.

I don't want to die. I want to live”. Several notes placed neatly on musical staff, quite catchy lyrics, you may say, and short introduction from a composer, forms altogether almost a song. But the song written down on 26th of Febraury 1903 by a Czech composer Leoš Janáček in his notebook bears a different authorship than his own; he himself was nothing more but a recording device for an unintentional song of his dying daughter, Olga. These were her last words, and a last melody, uttered in bed just before she passed away; almost a swan song addressed to her father sitting by the bed but also to a man obsessed by the everyday passing of melodies of the world we live in. Words, noises, screams, animals and doors, hundreds of different birds and dogs and finally also his dying daughter found their ways to form short songs in his notebooks via the language of music notation. So do we know the final expression of his daughter? It's all there, on the staff. Perhaps a song, and if so, definitely of swan kind, a document or a memoir but also an emblem of the entire myth of recording media – a song made of dying and about dying or in other words: a recorded song about recording...

Libretto excerpt:

First, I need a place.
A place that can gaze at me,
with a gaze that owns the entire space,
surrounds me fully,
arrests me, if you like, this gaze,
touching me everywhere, the tiniest bits of my skin,
undressing me.

I need a place able to make my body smell,
that can make it softer,
make me feel like there's a bit of pulp,
in between my skin and my muscles.
It's never only pleasent nintense, believe me.

Of what my experience tells me,
there's always a snake, or a viper.
No room is ever empty.
Be it a sneaky reptile,
some incidental dweller of distorted mind,
some displaced foreigner with unpredictable dispositions,
it might just as well be a newt,
but in any case – always with a cutting glare,
exactly there where you can't see him,
watching you,
but fully present,
watching, gazing, peeping at you
up to the point where the air gets thicker
and you start imagining your privacy,
you almost start thinking you're alone,
this is when it jumps on you,
it stings you,
and its sting is sharp,
sharp enough to make you loose your balance,
to make you shake imperceptibly,
like when you're on a cliff,
and it takes less than the slightest movement
to make you fall.

I need this kind of place
A place brave enough to settle on my body
press down on it a bit,
to lean on my arms
to push them,

it always goes further,
or down, rather
pushing these firm hands of mine
down to my hips
and further
into the wet.

From here, I can begin.
