TENTECHULAR DIS:PLEASURES #2: Omotatatatatat

Acoustic meatuses and other matters
Are you ready to be tackled
Tickled or truckled
Fire fit. Diss inject. Lit.
And that’s on, periodt
ORLY?
For hygienic purposes only
Tease me, hug me, squeeze me, pluck me

HTH them wavering hearts and tingling minds
Tentech(techtech)
is the new poetopolitical
Why, wait, they better circlude
Omotat. Ovinout. Omotatatatat
(Don’t wanna give TMI, it’s NSFW, TBH)
While squiggling through mudigital waters
With an inkling of
Rrrrrrrrrrrr
Yet pleasurable to the sight
Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Do you wanna be a lichen
Or do you wanna be liked?
Randomates of the differnet
Go feel for yourself
O IRL? YA IRL!
But by appointment only.
Feel free to mail me

TENTECHULAR DIS:PLEASURES #2 continues the ongoing series’ entanglement with tentechular qualities of sound at the interface of analogue and digital spaces and materialities. With the help of childhood fetishes of shamelessly zeitgeisty appeal, affective impressions along the fine line between comfort and discomfort, closeness and distance, body and technology might occur. Starting off in 2019 at Alte Schmiede, Vienna, a first live sound performance was realized in collaboration with sound artist Caroline Profanter.
The associated performance persona SirenX (who in the light of Covid 19 might be notably absent) seeks to queer the social reception of voice by means of categories such as gender, origin, age, etc. and obsesses about the physical (re-)production of electronic sound effects.

Nicole Sabella is an artist, cultural scientist and art educatrix engaging in performative strategies that are strongly informed by queer feminist thinking and collaborative practices. Through them she investigates the sociopolitical bonds between body, language, voice, sound, and space, and the way they unfold in constantly changing constellations or “choreo:spheres“. Her work is driven by the basic forces of rhythm and humor, often assembling or dissolving into performative sound installations. Technology is her friend and foe.
