FESTIVAL OF FEELINGS,
mjellmë presented their work Brain Electric a text-sound-performance about seizures they experienced as a result of ptsd and very fast processing brain very gratefully among so many other wonderful creatures, friends and loved ones.
Their sound is inscribed in the body, the image and in the language. As the ability to move, to be achieved, as a gesture that reaches out for optimizing, that has hands and feet and yet cannot see its own blind spots, even in extreme states such as pain, wounds, grief and trauma. These are at the starting point of this video, as they try to present the own vulnerability, weakness, and the wonders of the body.
The ascribed weaknesses, the humiliations and inscribed, in everyday life or historical forms of traumatization are illustrated and set to music in the same way as the self-inflicted, acquired weaknesses. A vulnerable strength overcomes many doubts, does not always sound pure, but forms and expresses itself in a multi-part, networked space. as a contact point, creative space and sound well.
mjellmë uses multi-layered, nested image-text-sound collages that try to make her own body experiences, sensory worlds and intellectual spaces tangible in a complex and condensed manner.
The noise of language and sounds is based on voice recordings, coded texts and recordings from AI voices, from which she creates new noisy structures.
