UperQt par COD.ACT



Since 2012, the Espace multimédia Gantner has been presenting sound art works at the FIMU, Festival International de Musique Universitaire, surprising young and old alike, in a singular location: an old metal-architected horse riding school. In ten years, the "Manège" has become one of the festival's key venues. This year's world premiere will feature the new work UperQt by the Swiss duo Cod.Act, regulars at the festival where they have already presented E-Cycloid, Nyloid, ... In the midst of the sonic excitement of a crowd of impatient spectators, two strange articulated tubular structures face each other, fragile and threatening. The gong sounds, one of the two creatures throws its upper arm forward. It sweeps across the space and makes the air whistle over the spectators. Surprised, his opponent flutters. The fight starts off strong. Sometimes tactical and ritualistic, sometimes tense and electric, the phases follow one another in a clever combination of mechanical and sonic contortions. Fragments of electronic waves burst out of the combatants to annihilate the space of the virtual audience. Vocal manifestations emerge and resound like exclamations in the face of the beauty of the show. With the support of Pro Helvetia, Swiss Arts Council.
