Body and vibration Around Sound

Javier Martín

Salón Teatro

Wednesday 4th October | 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Free admission, prior registration, while seating is available


Body and Vibration is a space open to experimentation whose starting point is movement and its crossover into sound. In this workshop, the choreographer, Javier Martín, proposes a look into the relationships between body and space starting with a very personal, dynamic work in which philosophy, improvisation, dance and performativity are part of a single discourse.

“A flat surface that warps itself to create three dimensions, the concave and the convex. If we talk about a metal medium, the sounds that these surfaces project are studied by the ars tintinabula, the art of touching bells. Sound is a mode of vibration that propagates within a certain physical space, the air [...] Background vibration within the texture of a body is a nexus of key change towards another relational paradigm. It has other qualities that within its specific degrees of freedom hold another locus of control or connective system; incorporating, through you, timely information or new emotions. From language and its sensitivity there is a body, and in relation to the ability to have enjoyment within such a structure -the body can be conceptualised as an unpredictable architecture-, it bides its time until its turn.” Mecha-mystic, Javier Martín.
