Subjective Dissonance is an intermedia project that explores the interaction between a dancer and the sounds produced by her own performance. The dancer’s sounds are not only amplified, but also captured in real time to be manipulated and then be sent back as such to the dancer. The dancer reacts and interacts with the new sound stimuli, cooperating to the development of the sonic environment. The subjectivity of the producers thus to contribute to the overall performance and the accumulation of layers of subjective meaning, producing a performative growth. The outcome lacks predictability as Subjective Dissonance’s procedure is based on improvisation.
