The Noise Scores are movement scores that came out of an embodied practice investigation that was part of my MA in creative practice.


Noise score:

I listen to the noise in my body.

Inside-outside is the same. 

I follow the noise in locations and intensity. 

Noise is unfolding within me.

I unfold my joints.

Unlock.

I meet and receive.

When is it silent?

Is silence ever still?

The noise is the same as me.

The same as inside/outside.

The same as to move and to be moved.

 

It scores.

It resonates

It’s loud…silent

It’s everywhere

It has directions

It orientates

It vibrates.

It flows

It resists

It hits

It’s located

It unfolds







Text response to noise score:

 
I let it come…

What is there now?

I stay here.

I let this moment transform. 

It’s revolving…evolving.

Transforming.

I’m molding and being molded.

I’m touched by the air.

The space is electric.

I touch texture…it touches me.

I’m testing surfaces…depth.

I’m testing effort.

Let it take me.

I’m surprisingly taking myself.

The noise inside/outside.





Noise score:( 2nd Version)

I listen to the noise in my body.

Inside-outside is the same. 

I follow the noise in locations and intensity. 

Noise is unfolding within me.

I resist.

I let go.

Connecting and disconnecting.

I unfold my joints.

Unlock.

Let the breath direct.

Can I Manipulate?

I meet and receive.

I agree and disagree.

When is it silent?

Is silent ever still?

The noise is the same as me.

The same as inside/outside.

The same as to move and to be moved

Relationship to sound:

I can find it hugely inspiring to work with sound. I find that sound can really become part of an ongoing negotiation that forms layers in between questions. I spend time making and finding sound scores that I can identify and merge with. After reflecting on my practice and the idea of noise leaking out, the sound I identify with at the moment is sound that sounds much like the noise in me. As I am leaking out the internal noise the outside sound is leaking in. I’m inhabiting space, time and sound… Space, time and sound is inhabiting me.
