Our work together centers on ideas of time, embodied memory, and ancestral imaginaries. We are interested in questioning perceived peripheries of sound, language, and representation. We are uncertain but suspicious of these liminal spaces of unknowing and unlearning… and their potential energy of a revolutionary sort. Collision & Repeat operates with a notion of intradisciplinarity and intra-action as a third space, a particular thing, a decentered experiment in becoming. Multiphonic sound is present in-between harmonic nodes, in the portion of string that they share. The layering of different harmonic worlds creates a complex sound hard to decode and capture, it resists reproduction or representation. Its quality reverberates pre-renaissance Sardinian harmonic singing known as tenores, something akin to what we believe Fred Moten would refer to as “before and before.” We retell, reverberate and mutate secret stories under our breath, between our bodies and beyond our reach. We have set some elements in motion and cannot control them.
