Words are my warders but don’t keep an I on me by Daniela Cascella is the fourth text in the Vibrational Semantics series. In this text Daniela tunes into the hums of voices heard within books, to the recollected csitation, to singing with stitched lips.
The Vibrational Semantics text series explores the voice’s ability to shift seamlessly between signification and sonority, from speech sound to noise in written language. Questions of linguistic ambiguity, embodied voicing and feeling/ meaning are investigated in relation to the place and presence of the performed voice.
The project is part of artist Samuel Brzeski’s ongoing artistic engagement with Lydgalleriet, involving other newly commissioned text works by Cia Rinne, Holly Pester and Lisa Busby. The texts are released in the months building up to Samuel’s solo exhibition with Lydgalleriet, opening February 2023.
Curated by Samuel Brzeski and commissioned by Lydgalleriet.
Vibrational Semantics is part the EU program Oscillations: Exercises in Resilience, kindly supported by Bergen City Council.
