Kill the ego

Esta Docu-pieza sonora me la mandó mi amigo Luis, al parecer tuvo la suerte de verla cuando estuvo en California. El 26 de Febrero se estrena en el Pompidou. Otro proyecto con muchísimo trabajo.

“Kill the Ego” began as a song, as an epic 40-minute-long poem composed of 10 years of sound recordings made in New York between 1998 and 2008. The fragmented memories of poets and dominatrixes, of pimps and prophets, of visionaries and lost children – the gamut of stories from the street: of the most obscure corners, of underground unrest, intimate and universal biographies of Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx – Soundwalk has captured and woven together the sounds, conversations, and songs of urbanity.

Created in 2008, “Kill the Ego” was presented at the international festival Exit, in Paris that same year, then at the contemporary art fair Fountain in 2009 in New York, and will be screened for the first time in its entirety on February, 26th 2010 at the Pompidou Center, Paris, as part of the Hors Pistes festival.
