Mattin and Miguel Prado met in A Coruña in 2007 and since then have shared their long running interest in voice within the context of improvisation and noise. Since 2011 they have developed the project of Evacuation of the Voice (EOTV) which includes Mattin's LP "Object of Thought" and Miguel Prado's text "Geotraumatic Evacuation of the Voice".
The urge for the "evacuation of the voice” appears from its inseparability from the dismantling of the face, identified as the vehicle for the representation of the "I” in capitalism. The artists propose ten sessions of one hour each (of which five now take place) where they will try to performatively evacuate the voice from their bodies, resorting to a process "subjective depersonalization”. The distancing form the thinking with the refusal of generic aesthetic idioms emerges as strategy to try to "understand our psychological, physiological and neurobiological conditions from an outsider’s perspective”.
Each session will be recorded and published together with the theoretical research in order to allow future analyses.
