Hear What I Feel, my interpretation of Joan La Barbara's experimental work.
Hear what I Feel is a self-exploratory, sensory-deprivation experimental work, designed to help discover new sounds, delve into psychological aspects, as well as communicate with the audience on a pre-verbal level of awareness. After spending an hour in isolation with eyes taped shut and not touching anything with their hands, the performer is led into the performance space where an assistant has placed a variety of substances in six small glass dishes. As the performer touches the material, an immediate vocal response is sounded to what is felt both emotionally and physically, without the benefit of visual information. The sounds are presented in their raw state; it is truly an experimental work with no intentional musical implications or designs.
