You say goodbye, I say hello / You say stop, I say go go go!

Sigourney Weaver works on the layering of sound and shapes a score of gestures / actions to produce a dense rhythmic grid. The audio act is informed by the rules and the spirit of a game, by the behavior and the physical dislocation of two players; it creates a visual/audio event that tends toward the breakdown, defining a zone of unrest and constant displacements. Concrete actions such as turning a knob, pressing a button or sliding a fader perform the imagery evoked by the two bizarre pilots of sound, who recall the gestures of table tennis players or the attitude of classic DJs. The performer has to be extremely vigilant to maintain a constant level of rhythm (as a DJ on the dance floor ) and to react quickly to the opponent (as a table tennis player).
