INFO & TICKETS
MOTE STUDIO, STRAY SIGNALS AND DIGITAL IN BERLIN PRESENT
Release event and live performance
19 / 21
Köpenicker Str. 147,
Mote Studio is proud to present the performance and release event of Lottie Sebes’ Veritas Ventriloquist on Saturday March 26th at Morphine Raum. Veritas Ventriloquist originates as a sonic performance with the Veritas Machine - a noisy, dynamic interface comprised of dismantled and reforged sewing machines, re-envisioned as an instrument and vocal synthesiser. The publication includes a music release, a printed visual anthology, and a web-based archive of videos, images and text-based research. The release event will feature Sebes’ performance of the work, joined by Annette Krebs with her piece Konstruktion#4, an electroacoustic composition assemblage of metal pieces, strings, sound objects, microphones, computers, tablets and sensors, sonically transformed in real time.
The performances will be experienced on Morphine Raum’s custom Mo Stern speakers and will be held twice in the evening, door open at 19:00 Uhr and 21:00 Uhr.

> Lottie Sebes’ Veritas Ventriloquist is a performance and sound work which questions, transforms, and harnesses the historical entanglements of gender, voice and technology. At the core of this performance is the Veritas Machine - a noisy, dynamic, woman-machine interface made of dismantled and reforged sewing machines, re-envisioned as an instrument and vocal synthesiser. This instrument is a set, an apparatus and a relational system of technological components which have been predominantly used by women in history.
Loops of archival material and electromagnetic sounds are wound through the mechanisms of the sewing machines, combined with their hacked foot pedals, resonating in Sebes’ oral cavity. The body becomes the sounding chamber for a genealogy where machines and media have historically impressed their gendered codes. Choking and aggression seep between the cracks of feminised postures and glances. The ventriloquised noise of the machine erupts through the mouth to form a shared agency through which a cyborg voice can defy the boundaries of its own gendered history.
In collaboration with Davide Luciani and curated by Mote Studio, Veritas Ventriloquist is being expanded from performance into a constellation of media which will be released as a publication in conjunction with a concert on the 26th of March at Morphine Raum in Berlin. More than an act of mere documentation, the forthcoming music release, printed visual anthology, web-based media and text-based research are intended to present the full extension of Sebes’ sprawling inquiry conducted on two interconnected fronts of artistic research: sound practice and written, theoretical research. This release seeks to map both the genealogies of the media Sebes employs in her work and her processes of research and creation, aggregating the trans-media and trans-disciplinary manifestations which are created in this process.
The release is co-published in collaboration with Stray Signals.
> Konstruktion#4 is an electroacoustic assemblage of metal pieces, strings, sound objects, microphones, computers, tablets and sensors. Quiet sounds and noises of objects and vocal sounds are highly amplified by microphones, and transformed in real time into a complex electro-acoustic collage for 2 loudspeakers.
