As part of a project supported by EUR ArTeC, we were able to work with the singers and the percussionist of the group Aàgut. Together, we wrote and recorded a polyphonic song that tells the complex relationships we have with technical objects.
This polyphonic song is made up of four verses that retrace the paths of our thought from the sensitive exploration of the materiality of inkjet printers. These verses are interspersed with three calls during which some of the great figures of technofeminism are summoned. Throughout this song, an inkjet printer is used as a percussion instrument to create the rhythmic background accompanying the intermingling of voices.
This song is presented in the form of a video installation composed of four screens. By relying on the hypnotic musicality specific to polyphonic singing, this installation allows us to share the broad outlines of our work program: a form of sung manifesto inviting us to imagine new forms of the future for our techno-planet.
