Utter tells a story about the complexities of the mother/child relationship from the perspective of language acquisition in a performance with sound and images. The piece is based on a text and composition by Anne La Berge. She invited me to develop the visual part of the piece, and we involved Marcel Wierckx who in turn helped with the interactive set up that we had envisioned for the piece. The three of us worked artistically on developing Utter, aiming at a format that could be performed live by Anne as well as being an interactive installation. The set includes 6 iPads that run a newly developed app that interacts with a laptop that steers both audio and visual material. Unsounds has published Utter within a collection of digital stories. Utter has been performed in the US, Mexico, and Europe, and will continue to be performed live in 2017.
The making of Utter and performance tours can be seen on Anne’s website: here.
This project is partially funded by the Creative Industries Funds NL and the Performing Arts Fund NL and supported by Volsap Foundation, Unsounds and Splendor Amsterdam. The video trailer is by Sergio Gridelli, 2016. Mark Marijnissen helped develop the unique software.

Heretics is a series of portraits of radical heretical figures found throughout the history of schismatic thinking. Heretics like Caravaggio, William Burroughs, Jose Mujica, Marquis de Sade and Johnny Rotten, fascinated the artists. These influential figures are presented here in the form of poetic texts and catchy melodies combined with experimental noise.
With the addition of ex-Sonic Youth guitarist, singer and songwriter Thurston Moore, Anne-James Chaton and Andy Moor’s more than a decade long collaboration becomes an extra exciting trio. Together they researched and created the material for Heretics during a residency in the French port of St Nazaire, in July 2014. They used voice, guitars and electronics in solo, duo or trio, to collaboratively explore their ideas and co-write texts and music. The process was documented on film by Benoit Bourreau, and a DVD is part of the package containing as well a Cd and a book of texts. I had the privilege to be invited during the residency in Saint-Nazaire, to conceptualize the design of the publication based on my experience of being immersed in the project.
This release was made possible with support from Lebeau et Associes (Paris), Herezie (Paris), Mona Films (Paris) and La Muse en Circuit (Paris). Unsounds, 2016
