Mattin and Miguel Prado met in A Coruña in 2007 and since then have
shared their long running interest in voice within the context of
improvisation and noise. Since 2011 they have developed the project of
Evacuation of the Voice (EOTV) which includes Mattin's LP "Object of
Thought" and Miguel Prado's text "Geotraumatic Evacuation of the Voice“.
The urge for the "evacuation of the voice” appears from its
inseparability from the dismantling of the face, identified as the
vehicle for the representation of the "I” in capitalism. The artists
proposed ten sessions of one hour each where they performatively
evacuated the voice from their bodies, resorting to a process
"subjective depersonalization”. The distancing form the thinking with
the refusal of generic aesthetic idioms emerges as strategy to try to
"understand our psychological, physiological and neurobiological
conditions from an outsider’s perspective”.
The recordings of the 10 sessions are now published together with
theoretical reflections by the artists, thinkers and philosophers as
contributions for the necessary analyses of the results.
