Artist Statement:


    Babil-on is a performance of augmented musical theater which metaphorically describes the fate of speech. If the birth of speech is marked by the enjoyment of phontation and the purity of the vowel, then babbling creates a hiccup of excitement and laughs when in crisis. At this moment an accident occurs: the irruption of a consonant. Through contagion, burst of disruption, and a continuous stream of linguistic actions, we can eventually impoverish the vocal material. In this work the word is exhausted by pure singing that allows us a return to original breath.
