Un Coup de Des (Barriere / Sainz): Volcan Evaporado (Creative Sources)

Two women in a duo of voice and amplified objects, Lali Barrier using a variety of devices that are clearly micro-amplifed and mixed in performance, as Marta Sainz intones vocal sounds, never speaking but creating innuendo and drama at a cautious pace, allowing Barrier's objects to interact, creating an unusual sonic environment of unpredictable and interesting discourse.

"Sound research has led Marta Sainz to develop her work not only with voice, the practice of butoh dance has also been instrumental in her quest for "chaos".

Her sound proposal is based on non-idiomatic improvisation, extended techniques and indeterminacy.

Through the voice and the body, she refers us to elements of German expressionism and to the theater of cruelty of Artaud, with it seeks an emotional shock of the viewer with their own experiences, without tHer means that content and performance have a concrete meaning or intentional in itself.

Besides the voice uses instruments like the dam-bau, the bass, objects ...

At present, she combines her solo project with various contemporary music, noise, free improvisation, primitivism .... both acoustic and electronic.
