DIMITRI DE PERROT: MYOUSIC
Dimitri de Perrot is a musician and director; even in theatre, he constructs narrations from sounds – he says he creates »sonic sculptures for theatre spaces using sound, space, light and visuals«. De Perrot created Myousic with his compatriot Julian Sartorius, a man of rhythm who explores the possibilities of his instruments, as well as connections of music to other forms of art. Sartorius can be seen on stage with Mark Ribot, his musical installations can also be seen in galleries, he runs an online audiovisual project Morph; he adds an element of collage and modifies an 8‑second audio loop every day.
The primary media of Myousic is sound, but the performance is an integrated sensory experience full of surprises, live scenography, as well as playing with the position of the audience. The sound sources are also stage elements, and voices are playing with us, too. Since there are no actors on the stage, the role of protagonists within the musical sculpture belongs to us, the audience. In a world where our view is constantly being directed and moderated, where we are not able to look away from the screens and the spectacle, an invitation to an experience where we can create our own path through the landscape of sensual stimuli that do not scream, but rather talk to us, is invaluable. In 041 Kulturmagazin, the performance has been described as a surrealism for your ears.
