Anna Stereopoulou, Athens’ composer and founder of CIRCE the Black Cut project has published a richly beautiful AV report of CIRCE’s events in Athens, 19 – 22 December 2015.
The exhibitions, concerts, listening events and broadcasts were the celebratory Finale of an exciting joint journey which began in August 2015 with CIRCE’s call for remixes on the subject of “Bees” and radio continental drift’s call-out “The Women of the Great River”.
Here I just pull together a few AV quotes from Anna’s report for you as a teaser to go on your own stroll across the resources of Anna’s pages. The two images include visual remixes to “The Women of the Great River” by Alma Tischler Wood and Agness Buya Yombwe.
The opening event on 19 December saw the release of the “CIRCE Family” Album 2015, called VOX [voice; out/ cry]. The Album gathers all remix-responses to the two sister-call-outs by 46 international artists of 15 countries in 28 tracks to One Voice “VOX” (as Anna’s subtitle poignantly suggests).
VOX invites us on an adventurous journey of listening in which Bees and BaTonga Women will be our guides. As they sing of the micro-cosmos, which is home to them, they allow us unknown glimpses of Cosmos at large and surprising, sometimes painfully familiar perspectives on our-selves and, “our” “World”.
Remixes are natural; will say, our audio remixes only echo the movements of Nature as it lives, breathes, survives, acts and communicates in ever new remixes of it’s resources – given “We”/ “Man”/ “the human animal” doesn’t grossly interfere in the Cosmos (=order)…
Lisa Greenaway’s remix of the “CIRCE Family” Album VOX gives another beautiful resonance space to the breath of “natural remix”…
Listening recommended !
