À haute voix: Arakmi
Ritual of manifestation
The time has come. Come celebrate and share this evening with us. I invite you to Arakmi, my place, my vibratory universe to participate in a great ritual. Immersed in an installation of suspended art objects and enveloped by the sound of my voice spatialized by the ESSAIM interactive loudspeaker system of the Audiotopie coop, I will reveal myself to you in a playground of my own image.
Arakmi is welcomed at the White Wall Studio. Three zones will be set up for you, the audience, to participate in this experience. An area with bean bags, an area with special edition Arakmi cushions and an area dedicated to exploration through movement. So, you can choose how you want to accompany me in this space. The adventure will last two hours..
This ritual will mark the launch of my album, as well as my book, both entitled "À haute voix: Arakmi". These entities contain within them the fruit of my investigations undertaken from the end of 2019 to today in order to bring to the surface the center of my identity, my multiple identities, as well as the dialogue I maintain with the invisible. An exhibition will be set up to give you more information on the processes that animated me in the crossing of this cycle of my evolution.
Looking forward to meeting you!
P.S.: This will be my birthday. I will be 33 years old. Let's celebrate!
