In Sonic Portals, its creator – Ciro Goudsmit – combines his research on low-frequency oscillators, with (afro) futuristic thinking: A possibility to curve “reality” and create alternative ones, where colonialization didn’t happen. Inspired by musicians as Sun-Ra, Lee scratch perry, Gabber Modus Operandi, Drexciya, and a place called space. With a group of intergalactic beings, he creates a landscape of sound where you can feel your whole body shake. Using movement research, subwoofers, bass shakers, vocoders, and DYI instruments as elements to open different portals. Not in the need for another utopia but in the need for different options.
The performance created by Ciro Gouldsmit is a continuation of the STUDIO theatregallery’s trend in which young artists combine various forms and genres of art – in this instance sound installation, dance and video – in order to search for new means of expression and explore them as the carrier of contemporary, critical reflection on the world.
