SCOTT 4 / Performance / ADN Platform / BeGood / Inside the Solow Show Relationship of Command / 2017

Spoken word performance that deals with research on musical patterns. Starting from the confession made by Scott Walker about the compass 3/4 in music in the documentary “30 Century Man” emerged a spoken text that wanders between the possibilities of the structure and the Convention of the pattern 4/4 in the current compositions. A text sometimes sung, others spoken and others rhymed that goes from the intuitive in the search of information to theories established in the relations with time and rhythm.
All this over a percussion bases that mimic the dry blows of the batteries of the 80 in the Post-Punk. The performance also goes from the comfort of adapting a text to a rhythmic pattern and how this reading can be modified when this rhythm changes. The installation consists of 4 performances (where the same text is said with different time bases: 4/4, 5/4, 6/8 and 7/8). An action that speaks of rhythm, but at the same time command and gesture protocol.
