Lifewave : The Infinite Feedback Loop That I Am
Since the beginning of human time, the questions have always remained the same, especially for those inclined to look up at the stars and wonder about the vast network of pulsing wavelengths of light showcased before their eyes.
In Vedic thought Swara is the current of the Lifewave, the breathing motion of the universe oscillating between the evolution and involution of undifferentiated matter into the differentiated matter, back and forth, in and out, forever and ever.
This pulse has always been associated with sound and breath, the AUM, a feedback loop, the reverberation of the Big Bang within which all of organic and inorganic life dwells, thrives, expands, and contracts in absolute and relative interconnection.
Lifewave: The Infinite Feedback Loop That I Am, consists of a 22-hour live radio ritual involving sonic, informational, poetic, biological, and parafunctional feedback between artists, scientists, mystics, earth-beings, and aliens exploring ideas, procedures, practices, and disciplines that delve into the everlasting questions that surround the unfathomable mystery of Life, Breath and Sound.
Conversations alternate and intertwine with sounds of raw and processed feedback of different sorts, which help open the way towards abstract poetic derives on subjects such as the eternal return, circular non-linear time, multidimensionality, sound and space, void and silence.
In these times of strange-strangeness we set out to collectively explore and share through a durational radio ceremony that modifies and transforms life waves into sound waves into light waves into electromagnetic waves into telluric energies into dreamscapes into …. Attempting to have a glimpse of a time before time and after time, a space before space and after space, the real and the unreal within the infinite reflections of Indra’s web of feedback.
The final lineup for this durational broadcast part of the wonderful Radio Art Zone will be announced in losriosdezunino.xyz on the second week of June 2022.
