7 INCH OF SLAM - THE FULL BODY SOUNDSCAPE premiered as part of the
collaboration between Diver Festival
Tel Aviv 2019 and From Jaffa to Agripas
Festival Jerusalem 2019;
produced with the support of Mifal
Hapais - The Israeli Lottery Council for Culture and Arts.
A full live album - a soundtrack of flesh and voice. Seven women assemble to practice the instrumental-musical and the tangible-sensory impulse that arises from the collision between the body and the floor; the body as an instrument surrounded by other instruments - a set of drums and electric guitars. Together they examine the ritualism of the slamming action, re-experiencing and witnessing pleasure despite pain, through coercion and liberation, focusing on the physical and behavioral shape of their voice. Through various audial-sonoric images, vocal archetypes and “the instruments’ song”, they alter the meaning of visual perception - forms and sensations - procuring new connotations for it, rebuilding the moment of fragmentation.
