As in all of her work, Isabella Bordoni pays great attention to the compository relationship between lyrics and sound. In her live performance at the digital studio for radio plays RP4 of the Vienna Funkhaus, she creates poetic atmosphere, acoustically as well as visually, by interweaving and intertwining her own voice reciting texts in Italian with original recordings of Ingeborg Bachmann's voice, thus making references and resonances between the languages and voices perceivable.
The dramaturgic composition of lighting, slide and video projectors creates a visual, but immaterial space for the live poetry performance.
Reflection in four points (by Isabella Bordoni)
1_For some while now, I have been exceeding lyrical and sonic horizons in my work in order to create, and design poetic, acoustic, and visual spaces. For some time, I have been questioning the philosophical world of thoughts and ideas which is expressed in literature; and for some time I've been looking back at my childhood with a lyrical view. The term childhood alone implies an outcry. This scream is irreparable, as it seems, and history repeats it time and again.
2_Exceeding things, the state of transition is what I'm interested in.
4_"Andante con figure" deals with this end, and this state of transition.
