The inspiration for this work came from contemplating the idea of “art´s origin” or “art´s birthday”. When recording the material for KINAESTHETIC POETRY -installation, eight singers (KuNuKu Choir) surrounded three water pools. By using special sound equipment, the singers voices created geometrical shapes on water surface in real time. A kinaesthetic contemplation took place between the singer and the inner water. While recording, we were specially interested on the “birth” moment of geometrical shapes, and on the minimal effort needed to sustain the moving forms in water.

The sound of KP is based on 17 minute long loop. Musical arrangement was created by KuNuKu -choir via improvisation methods. The choir leader Jussi Mattila helped the choir to find the inner alignment with the water, but the audible musical arrangement comes from the group dynamics. On the final installation presented at Akusmata Gallery (17.1-30.1.2020), the singers are replaced by eight 8” full range speakers, placed on 1:1 relation how the recording took place. The guest can investigate the conscious movements of human perception, and alignment with non-human element such as water.
