Nocturne for broken vocal cords

Nocturne for broken vocal cords is part of Sergiu Matis's Noise Nocturnes, a series of performances and texts that revisit the romantic genre in its fascination for the night and darkness, imitating nature and flirting with folklore.

The massive blocks of acoustic and motoric noise, as well as the abundance of recycled texts spoken at high speed or shouted, constitute the dense score of the nocturne. Choreographic tools applied to movement and voice make navigation possible through the overload of glitched and fragmented moves and sounds, by supporting chaos with coherence. Intense shouting transforms the voice into a hopeless and hurtful tune.
