Paper short abstract:

It takes an invention and excuse to go outside and explore music without musical skills. The study is designed as an artistic practice that approaches the theme of limits in voice, music and language in space. It explores its capacity to create relationships.

Paper long abstract:

"The arrival is a clash. The dissonance is clear which has always existed. An absolute confirmation of not-belonging, the language comes out in an artificial way."

This research approaches the issue of limits and relates to the question of inclusion and exclusion in the context of space, accessibility, artistic drive and language. What drives us to create music? What practices enable musical connections? What or who defines the in- and outside?

It includes practices, ranging from whisper translation to Grindcore, which I have exercised during my SenseLab residency in Montréal from October 2017 to January 2018.
