On Thursday September 11th 2014, 15 people participated in c.along #1 by Jess Arndt, fiction writer based in Brooklyn / Los Angeles. For three hours, performers of c.along #1 Corporealation explored the body as a container and language as body.
We talked to elbows, through guts and in sacrums; grew bigger and more unruly. Through writing as a corporeal experience, flesh translations, and gross metaphors, our bodies became other bodies that were our bodies – excessive, resisting description, profuse.
Oceans of Loving is an audial documentation and a sound composition by Moa-Lina Croall. Based on a 2,5 hour recording of the corporeal writing exercises performed during c.along #1, Croall has abstracted and experimented with samples and generated an audial work; in itself a choreography. No instruments, bass or drums have been added, but are instead concrete sounds from the recordings that have been manipulated. Pens being clicked and papers folded; steps on the floor; sighs; coughing, and pencil strokes — pitched, delayed and reverbed into a techno sequence.
