the performance Compost (How to Ovulate) was held during Pornoise #2, an evening of experimental sound poetry:

-at 8 PM sound/voice/many noises and supersupercodes theory:

transverseness, conference by Joachim Montessuis. What relationship can there be between poetry, sound, noise, the visual arts, new technologies, science and spirituality? In what way can we continue envisaging an overall experiment, somewhere between tradition and artistic experimentation, refusing to be categorised?

-At 9:30 PM Compost (How to Ovulate):

Lucille Calmel, Antoine Boute, Joachim Montessuis, spatial performance for three voices, computer, guitar, digital compost and trance



-EROS :AGAPE collective massage session and installation of a multiscreen device by Joachim Montessuis until May 26



Compost (how to ovulate):

spatial performance for three voices, computer, guitar, digital compost and trance

performance/reading/body/sound/voice/computer/guitar/noise/neuter/trance/from the material and relations generated by an Internet list “compost_23”and “cu_cu_clan”/lists as a place for relating various writings, images and sounds/monster poetry/sex and crashed/waves and various absences and games of belonging to oneself to others/this material (especially texts) will be “edited” here and there now/which means dispersing pages in order to open up a space for the performance/a space in which three voices + a few bodies will meet to act to dirty to agglomerate and in an extreme way to condense different languages, soft holding-backs and vanishings -- letting go of brains on fire and/or itching intestines, the making-of (recompose this if you like)/the performance being the violent occurrence of this meeting. Different things are at stake, constructions and(non) organic rules/behavior destroyed through onanism, duels and collectives/27 minutes or much more”. The performers use texts on sheets of paper that they spread out on the floor. They use these texts as a base for reading and improvising. They reuse them for each performance; the worse their condition gets, the more difficult the reading becomes and the greater the part of improvisation.
