10 minutes of snoring and rain (material poem of the dreaming poet)
1. Sounds were recorded at random one night in a hotel during a trip, in 2014. The recorder was left on, while the poet was sleeping.
2. The recording was edited and becomes a poetic piece following its conceptual elaboration arising from the Vox Media call.
3. Snoring, which is not a voice, constitutes an uncontrolled sonority. The performance brings together the materiality of the whole representation.
4. Considered from this material basis the piece is the audiogram of the dream. Considered from the oniric perspective it is the sonority of the unconscious working.
5. Synthesis: the performance includes the variations of the snoring, the sounds of the rain, the dream of the sleeper, the chance recording of the sounds, the unconscious work of the poet.
6. The duration (10 minutes) is part of the materiality of the poem.
B. Installation: guidelines for the transmission. The simple way to listen to this piece is with headphones on a stereo. It is suggested that listeners experiment with alternating channels, if the equipment allows for alternating channels. a) For a first listening, use the left channel; b) for a second listening, use the right channel; c) for the third, use both channels in stereo. Left channel: sound landscape (snoring and rain) in linear time. Right channel: certain alterations of the ordering of the sequences produce other sound combinations. The stereo, both channels at the same time, alternates the snoring as in counterpoint.
Audio post-production made in the "labOratorio" Maldonado, Uruguay.
