El tiempo ritmo
El tiempo ritmo is a musical lecture, a performance circulating around notions of non-linear time. The presentation was part of Cosmoaudiciones, an artistic project by Miguel Buenrostro with the participation of Laura Robles, Trigo Santana, Fabiano Luna, Robby Geerken, Tom Kessler and Banda Hodi.
Musicians from several diasporas related to the Atlantic Ocean were invited to reflect on the movement of migration through musical improvisation. El tiempo ritmo is a crossover of musical entities that exist in complementarity, hosting each other in rhythm. The performance touches on questions of time and timelessness, rhythm and the rhythmless. Through improvisation with materials from the Berlin Phonogramm Archiv, the performers hope to restore notions of time that exist through musical memory. They also raise several questions:
How can we restore time from the extracted worlds of meaning? How can we ‘sound’ the archive with dignity? How can we re-socialize that which remains in absence from the archive? And how can listening practices move us towards re-futuring musical worlds?
