Shaping Sounds 2: Guy Dartnell


Dance4 associate and performance artist Guy Dartnell, deaf choreographer Chisato Minamimura and acoustic specialist Dirk Puschel have been involved in research, using voice-movement techniques combined with exciting new acoustic equipment and software, so far only used in the aircraft and car industries.

The idea is to see if a deaf person might be able to develop their feeling-connection to and use of their own voice in such a way that it becomes a ‘soundtrack’ to their own movement.

Also, through visual mapping of vocal sounds on video images, can another layer be added to the experience of deaf and hearing audiences in relationship to sound-led movement?

There is an opportunity to see Guy’s work at Greenwich Dance on 28th September at 7pm.
