INTIMAL is a physical-virtual “embodied” system for relational listening, to be used within the practice of networked and telematic sonic performance. INTIMAL explores sense of place and sense of presence in the context of human migration.
INTIMAL has released two modules in GitHub:
- MEMENTO, a co-located, and “embodied” navigation system of an oral archive with Colombian women’s testimonies of conflict and migration;
- RESPIRO, a live, telematic transmission of breathing signals, which are locally sonified in each location;
The research participants tested the system in an INTIMAL Long Distance Improvisation (a telematic sonic performance), between the cities of London, Oslo, and Barcelona, in May 7, 2019. INTIMAL proved to be a catalyst for creating processes of collective remembering and catharsis, within the context of Colombian post-conflict and peace building.
