L'Encylopédie de la parole will present their new show at Kunstenfestivaldesarts in May, we take the oppotunity to invite Joris Lacoste and Elise Simonet to lead a workshop at Cifas.
The workshop proposed for Cifas is an invitation to enter the processes that are at the core of the Encyclopédie’s work : collecting, indexing and re-enacting speech recordings. Using specific research methodologies, we will collect new audio documents related to Brussels and its multiple languages. The participants will then vocally experiment these fragments during the workshop. Some elements will be performed in a public presentation at the end of the workshop.
--- L'ENCYCLOPEDIE DE LA PAROLE ---
L'Encyclopédie de la parole is an artistic project exploring orality in all its forms. Since 2007, the collective has been collecting various recordings of word, inventoring them on its website according to their particular properties or phenomena such as cadence, chorality, timbre, address, saturation and melody.
What do the poetry of Marinetti, a horse-racing commentary, a lecture by Jacques Lacan, the flow of Eminem, a message left on an answerphone, an auction sale, a speech for the defence by Jacques Vergès, a shampoo advert and conversations recorded in the local café have in common?
Using this collection of sound documents, l’Encyclopédie de la parole produces sound pieces, performances and shows, lectures, games and exhibitions. Today, l'Encyclopédie de la parole gathers Frédéric Danos, Emmanuelle Lafon, Nicolas Rollet, Joris Lacoste, David Christoffel and Elise Simonet.
