Marina Cyrino / Matthias Koole / ICNISP /

Loud & Venomous is a live-performed audiovisual installation created by Marina Cyrino and performed by ICNISP. By playing with stereotypes, Loud & Venomous aims to contribute to dismantle the fetishisation of strangers that serves to reinforce Western agency and identity construction at the expense of strangers, who are regarded as preexisting objects rather than subjects of knowledge. Loud & Venomous plays with imaginaries of dangerous-loud-flamboyant animals/strangers/foreigners, addresses themes as otherness and difference, engages with Sara Ahmed’s work “Strange Encounters” and with the concept of “controlling images” as proposed by Patricia Hill Collins. The performance is, especially, a celebration of loud and venomous beings.

ICNISP (Institute for Certified Sonic Nomadic Illicit Practices) is the Berlin-based duo of Brazilian musicians Marina Cyrino (flutes/audiovisual installations) and Matthias Koole (guitar/el.guitar). The duo has been bending guitar and flute towards a common hybrid terrain. To help them in this task, they choose – or are chosen by – a mixture of electronic and acoustic sound sources, objects and preparations, inside amplification, rapid changing guitar effects and rattling percussion. https://marinacyrino.art.br/ic...
