Sebastian from Tangatamanu on Vimeo

Take and eat, this is my body. (Matteo, 26)
Interpretation of the figure of St. Sebastian by a female figure, where Revelation and Sacrifice are part of a single fate, the search for meaning through the Passion as a body instrument to reach the ecstasy in the merger.

Nigredo from Tangatamanu on Vimeo
Putrefaction (Nigredo) is the way to the fertilization. Nigredo is the key of transmutation. Matter turn down it self, carry the germination. (J.C. Barchusen, Elementa chemicae, Leiden 1718) This metamorphosis is wached by a woman looks, in the her-self re-birth, every time differents, every time renews.

"En mi casa abatio' su rayo el amor"
Oquedades es una apertura, una grieta abierta sobre una tierra cerrada.
Los poros abiertos de un territorio que a un tiempo absorbe y segrega las imagenes interiores nacidas del excedente creado por la vida. Un espacio que se autoregenera en un continuo parto interior.
Julia chiner

Oquedades follows the path which I have taken for several years when dealing with poetic texts through electroacoustic processing, shifting the balance alternately along a sort of semiotic axis.
The text was recorded in various forms and subdivided according to timbre/duration/form. The electronic processing and the various distinctive typologies of natural vocal emission permitted the exasperation or the minimization of the phonetic characteristics of each particle. The material obtained in this way fluctuated between code and sound until the sense itself of the text was lost and reverted to a language far closer to the preverbal one, still uncontaminated by the share of language. Weeping, laughter, fear, amazement are all sensations that can be communicated without the aid of a fully-developed language and are common to the genus homo sapiens over and above culture and language.
It is a specific area which the learning of a code tends to cover, but which music - a refined abstract art par excellence - invariably succeeds in penetrating and representing, like dreams.

Disphase is a composition of word.
The lyrics were written in Marrakesh (Morocco) in 2000.
Monsters of imagination in Bosch's world,
the chaos of the suk, the smell of a no-time zone,
drawn in a terrible vision in my book.
Two years later I've been composed this delicate music.
From terrible to kind,
through a bland young female voice,
to emphasize hardness and softness in the same nature.
Its lyrics are considered as sounds.
The meaning transcends meaning:
sound is meaning, space is meaning.
A sound-shadow accompanies all the words and lyrics,
sounds and noises have the same importance.
