Poetic Equations #2

The work investigates the historical phenomena of the hysterical women. Poetic Equations #2 is a score of 13 minutes length. It is based on the mechanical recodings of the bouts and tremors of the hysterical bodies. The score reenacts these, using the recorded movements as pitch indicators for the voice and the body parts referenced as the text material. The voices are trying to reconnect a disintegrated body into an undamaged, intact one again.
