Magnetoceptia: Crinolettes – Gyration Resistance, 2019

Crinolettes – Gyration Resistance

June 21th 2019 at CLUB RADIOKOJE 2019, Kongreßbad Vienna Ottakring (AT).

Crinolettes – Gyration Resistance is a site-specific radio-ballet based on transformative wearable antennas. As a reinterpretation of the historical female clothing element the ‘Crinoline’, a hooped cage initially worn under petticoats, the antennas now function as physical extensions of the performer’s bodies and technological expansion of the human senses – shifting symbols of restriction into emancipatory tools of liberation. The rotating spheres receive site-specific electromagnetic waves which are made audible and processed as raw sound material into a musical composition. The signals are dependent on the position of the performers relating to the space and each other.
