Observation No. 1 Gabrielle Harnois-Blouin [Gabrielle HB]

The aim of this project was to observe the mind, identify and describe the different tracks — or states of mind — that could be revealed and then translate them into sounds. The two main materials that were recognized were sparkles of electricity (soft or dense, painful or gentle) and waves of thoughts, chanting, slowly building stories. This piece is a short excerpt of the constant, but ever-changing concert happening inside us. We tend to look for strong sensations and feeding from the outside world, but a lot may be learned and felt in our own brains and bodies.
