Lo propio del sonido es pasar, huir, estar inmutablemente atado al tiempo y dependiendo del movimiento […] El color, sometido al lugar, es fijo y permanente como él. Resplandece estando en reposo. (Claude LéviStrauss)
El próximo jueves 20 de febrero dará inicio el segundo ciclo de música improvisada Articulaciones del silencio en el Auditorio Index MUAC del Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo de la UNAM (Ciudad de México). El primer concierto de esta nueva serie tendrá como invitados a (sic), dueto formado por Julian Bonequi y Rodrigo Ambríz, improvisadores activos y recurrentes en diversos contextos emergentes de la escena ruidista citadina.
(sic) es un proyecto reciente, en el cual Bonequi y Ambriz se valen de distintas estrategias estructurales para construir formas concretas de recorridos abiertos, donde la voz y el pulso dan cauce a un ritual que alude a un lenguaje cuyo rastro se expone y se intuye en la memoria más allá de cualquier código o atisbo de entendimiento.

Rully Shabara: “Zoo was set up around 2004 in Jogjakarta, Indonesia. Most people, including you, would often categorize us as an experimental rock band since there is no exact term to perfectly fit for our music. I am the singer and occasionally play the jembe and synthesizer. I am also the singer in Senyawa. Bhakti Prasetyo plays bass guitar, and most of the time treats his sounds to resemble many other instruments, particularly electric guitar. We have two drummers with different styles; Ramberto Agozalie, who is also the drummer for Jogjakarta’s finest metal band Cranial Incisored, plays more upbeat and technical beats, while Dimas Budi Satya would be more rhythmic and straightforward. Recently, Dimas handles the background percussions to broaden the range of our rhythm section.”

Rully: “Most of the songs are written in Bahasa Indonesia but there are few songs where I sing in Javanese language. And many times I don’t even sing in any language, just random voice sounds when I feel that language could actually be limiting.”
Wukir: “Wukir: The instrument is called Bambuwukir, it constitutes string and percussive characters, all in one instrument. The percussive organology resembles traditional instruments like Celempung or Lakado, and with the right amplification it can produce drum like sounds, and the strings could sound like siter, rebab, or kecapi. The head of this instrument resembles a bamboo spear, a symbol of our struggle against the Dutch during colonization.”
