WITHOUT WORDS OR THINGS . João Madeira e Constança C. Homem

 

by João Madeira and Constança Carvalho Homem

from António Franco Alexandre

 

"Without words or things", 1974, is a unique example of the work of António Franco Alexandre. An improbably mature poem, it is assumed as a fictional exercise and privileged plastic, sonorous territory. In the sought affinity between voice and double bass, João Madeira and Constança Carvalho Homem present the fruits of a residence guided by three great questions: how to make audible meaning without detracting from an inherent strategy of camouflage? what musical allusions may be present, thickening the performative vocation of the poem? what compromise between plan and entropy, improvisation and score?
