Abstract [en]

Artificial Body Voices is a scenic complex that explores the human desire to transform our bodies and connect to technology. Through stimulation rather than simulation this project will invite the audience to an artistic experiment connecting choreography, robotics, music, electro acoustics, vocal art, video and 3D-technique. This complex of physical, virtual and artificial bodies and voices will be developed in a process divided into six workshops, during 2010/2011, where the contributors share and transform the artistic material into new formats and combinations. In the format of a 45 minutes installation/ workshop we will present excerpts from the artistic process followed by a discussion on how a body-voice-technology encounter produce new scenic subjects, artistic methods and concepts: The Robocygne (robot-swan-dancer), The Throat (computer-operavoice-artefact) and Clockwork Body Parts (video). In addition to the scenic complex, Artificial Body Voices constitutes the laboratory of choreographic material and concepts in Åsa Unander-Scharin’s artistic research project producing and exploring multistable bodies and shifting corporealities. The project also constitutes the laboratory for vocal material in Carl Unander-Scharin´s PhD project “Tenor techniques and Singing Technologies”, hosted by the University college of Opera in Stockholm/Royal institute of Technology. In November 2010 a series of their works was shown in the exhibition Opera Mecatronica at Experimental stage Reactor hall 1 at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm:
