ODG159: Floy Krouchi - Núria Martínez-Vernis / Electrogenètica

Two stubborn explorers of their respective arts, music and poetry met at GTS for a concert/recital that resulted in an intense journey through the depths of artistic creation in May 2018.
A dragged and disturbing abecedary opened the Encounter in the Space Time. Núria Martínez- Vernis started the recital by shelling the letters of the alphabet with blasts and cacophonies while Floy Krouchi started her machinery producing sound waves skimming the ground, or even below, thus creating a dark and unhurried ambient, both dense and hypnotic only loosen in the short final encore. Krouchi and Martínez-Vernis, two “parallel worlds that understand each other from ear to ear,” weaved a deep recital, they cooked a rich magma as slow as bright that still reverberates on the walls of the venue, as well as on the arteries of the audience.

They have baptised their action Electrogenètica and the final result is a 38 minutes of music, voices and sounds that go deep in a sort of trance that hypnotises our ears.

French bassist Floy Krouchi, LEM’s resident artist in 2017 and 2018, is a renowned experimenter on the possibilities of her instrument, the sounds of which she modifies as she wishes thanks to electronic devices. Outstanding composer, she has worked with artists of several disciplines all over de world, performing sonic installations, web-art and music for dance and experimental cinema.
On the other hand, Catalan poet Núria Martínez-Vernis, with three published books and several prizes, is one of the most powerful voices if the current Catalan poetry, having performed in hundreds of recitals. She is currently immersed in the research of the stage possibilities of improvisation with words, being a pioneer in this field in our country.

Meetings at l'Espai-Temps (EET): Interdisciplinary Laboratory of Improvisation are combined sessions of collective improvisation of artists from different disciplines: music, dance, poetry, narrative and acting, and visual arts. He raises the intersections between the arts of words, body, sound and drawing live when they come together in the same space-time through the improvisational grammars of those disciplines. It also includes readings, screenings and a combination of several of these activities, although mainly in their performative aspect. The year- round extension of this device allows it to adapt to the opportunities of touring artists and the possibilities of their interaction with local creators. Encounters in Space-Time (EET) are a perfect container for interdisciplinary, intergenerational and transnational experimentation and also allow local artists to be tracked for international exchanges as well as for programming at the LEM.
