#02: De nómadas y trashumantes

VOCES QUE CAMINAN

With Gabriel Villota

According to Bruce Chatwin, the aborigines would leave a record of their journeys on foot through their songs: when these songs were sung, not only was there a mnemonic resource activated which facilitated the interpretation of a sound map, but likewise the sound of the song itself, from the voices and stories, turned material. The cities in which we live are saturated with noise: this saturation precludes listening, something for which silence is required. And that silence is produced away from the city centre, in places far away from power and capital.

This programme commences from the crossover of both ideas: the pursuit of the silence necessary to listen to the sound of the voice, on the one hand, and the observation of the body and its sound when moving, on the other, as a necessary support for the voice.

Gabriel Villota Toyos (Bilbao, 1964). PhD in Audiovisual Communication and professor at the University of the Basque Country, where he was director of cultural programming, he has worked since the early 90s in various activities in relation to the sound and visual arts. His works have been published in numerous specialist magazines, catalogues and books. He recently curated the “Displaced bodies” and “Displaced bodies II” cycles on performance, dance and film at the Reina Sofía Museum (Madrid) and Azkuna Zentroa (Bilbao).

Episode #02: “De nómadas y trashumantes”

The maragato universe in León, built from a particular way of living nomadism; The real ravines used for the movement of the herds in the Spanish west, and other related experiences, will serve as a backdrop to talk with the writer and veterinarian María Sánchez about the experiences based on the movement of the bodies and their voices around the environment rural.

Bruce Chatwin-ek kontatzen duenez, aborigenek oinez ibilitakoa gogoan izateko kantuak erabiltzen zituzten; kantu horiek abestean, soinu-mapa bat interpretatzeko aukera ematen zuen baliabide mnemotekniko bat aktibatzeaz gain, ahotsean eta kontakizunean oinarritutako kantuaren sonoritatea bera material bihurtzen zen. Bizileku ditugun hiriak zarataz beteta daude: saturazio horrek ez du entzuten uzten, horretarako isiltasuna behar baitugu. Eta isiltasun hori hiriguneetatik urrun dago, boterearen eta kapitalaren eremuetatik bereizita dauden lekuetan. 

Programa honen abiapuntua bi ideia horiek gurutzatzea izan zen: ahotsaren soinua entzuteko isiltasun nahitaezkoa bilatzea, alde batetik, eta gorputza eta haren soinua behatzea, beste alde batetik, bestea behatuz, ahotsaren euskarri ezinbesteko gisa.
