Ekphrasis // phonemokinetic performance - Jarek Kordaczuk
EMS electrodes, musical use of sensors, biomedical measurements in musical applications. Music and medicine. ECG electrodes that control sound events. Manipulation of text, syllables, sounds, phonemes. The ghost in the machine, or Frankenstein\'s creature - a new version of the legend. Electrodes glued to the face, arms, stomach, torso, thighs, legs and back. Parts of the body that speak with shreds of words.

Imagine that?
... you want to say something, but the right words fly with the wind,
... you want to communicate, but someone interprets your statement completely differently,
... you want to make contact with someone, but what you articulate, creates a barrier of strangeness between each of you,
Or maybe you know this so well that you don't have to imagine it?
Sometimes it is so difficult to translate the ineffable into a specific sentence. Words like boxes close ephemeral meanings. They materialize the meanings and content in a strange, sometimes surprising shape.
On the stage, the composer Jarek Kordaczuk builds musical spaces using his own hand-designed instruments: muscleodotron and monoctone. The choreographer Paulina Wycichowska, connected to the electrodes, releases sounds and translates the physical shape into acoustic gestures.

"Ekphrasis" is a rhetorical figure - a detailed verbal description of a work of art, in the performance it takes the form of embodied sound. At the same time, body sculpture becomes expressed on an auditory plane - invisible muscle speech is translated into music via electrodes. Individual fragments build a statement - a message for viewers. Slowly, sound after sound, scraps of words form a coded message. Perhaps this is an important message for the world - a phonemokinetic message, a warning, a remedy for crises, a recipe for the medicine sought? What happens if it is not read?
