Title:
Song of the Age of Penumbra

Author:
Ola Koziol Suavas Lewy PRZEPRASZAM group

Description:
We would like to develop our project during a residency program. The final result of the residency would be a video that will be the documentation of the performance "Song of the Age of Penumbra" a composition for 20 people and 20 sound objects. In the course of 2 weeks workshops with 20 inhabitants ( youth and adults) we will prepare the composition based on voices, sounds from the rubbish objects and costumes. We would like costumes to be fanciful, created with our help by the participants of the workshops and their imagination for example fish, birds, creatures. The idea of the composition is contained in the theses and conclusions from the book "The Fall of Western Civilization" by Naomi Oreskes and Erika Conway. They outline a real vision of the future world that has to face with negligence and omissions of global policy on climate change. The authors call the 21st century- the Age of Penumbra, the age of denial and ignorance. Despite the knowledge and the ability to influence on the changes, governments and humanity couldn’t prevent catastrophes that have occurred later. In the composition without the use of words but using the sounds from junk objects, an appeal will be sent that these are the last moments for a global reaction to the coming irreversible climate changes. During the workshops, breaking the barrier of fear, of thinking about experimental and contemporary music and art., participants will learn they body through discovering the fascinating world of sounds that can be extracted with the help of mouth, breath, sound-imaging and repetition of phrases. We will learn techniques of sound extraction, types of conducting using pre-determined signs, and prepare and compose the final “song”. At the same time, to the musical setting of the composition we will use self-constructed sound objects, built from available plastic garbage. For the video production we will use garbage to create costumes and stage sets. This will be the recording of the performance of the composed work with the use of all elements created during the workshop. Video art in the visual layer will refer to the dadaist manifest of Hugo Ball and musically will be based on the use of compositional technique close to minimalism and the spirit of assumptions of John Cage’s indeterminism.
