Synekine project - Collective memory palace
6th > 10th October 2014
Recipient of IRCAM’s 5th Edition Musical Research Residency Program, 2014
This project merges gesture and voice through technical innovation.
Researchers, developers and performers connect to enhance the body’s language.
The Collective Memory Palace is a mnemonic technique that went out of use after the Middle Ages. A speaker could memorize a lengthy speech by distributing it into different spaces of an imaginary place. The Collective Memory Palace is the choreography brought about by two improvisers evolving within a new device : Sound Space.
Metaphor installation, sound sculpture, this place offers the public a prospect to call upon another’s memory.
