Echos from a liquid memory, by Carincur, comes from a transdisciplinary piece that crosses performance, concert and audiovisual installation, simultaneously exploring visual, sound and digital arts. The musical composition is taken to the limits of its possibilities, through manipulation and processing of submerged and propagated digital sound and image through water. This action creates a new universe, a new ecosystem, where interactions of organic and non-organic matter create changes in the environment, while physical and digital coexist in an abstract narrative, between a liquid fragmented memory and the perception of ourselves projected in time and space.
This three-track EP is a trilogy taken from a device built from water, where the body, through its submersion, is the exploratory medium. For half an hour, in a chain of sound fragments and liquid manifestations, the genesis of matter as we know it gradually oscillates in a state of alterity, reminding how memory it’s vulnerable to time. The measurement that presupposes the value of “authenticity” breaks down into a process of self-transformation, circumscribing an imminent transcendence where a new habitat is reincarnated in the body in kinesis.
