ALPHABET explores the combinatorics between signs on one side and signals on the other. The performance, inspired by the Etymologies of Isidore of Seville twisting the scientific rigor to privilege phonetic acquaintances, revisits the strategies of representation invented by the man to tell the world around him in the digital age. ALPHABET invites the spectator to immerse themselves in the multiple relationships that, through language and its digital translations, maintain words and things.
After many collaborations this new record by Anne-James Chaton and Carsten Nicolai aka Alva Noto speaks a new language, generated by the fusion of objective poetry and minimal music. From the dialogue of the graph and the glitch a poetics of the code is born from which arises a representation of the contemporary world.
