For the latest instalment in the series Foreign Tongues, Liquid Loft has collected a wide array of sound recordings of regional dialects and languages from Europe, composing an incredible library of language. Using different techniques of phonetics and rhythm, the resulting collection has been turned into a dance performance. All material can be used tonally as part of an acoustic setting and as part of a library of language: rustling of leaves, gravel scrunching and other sounds resulting from surface friction of materials such as concrete, glass and paper. In Models of Reality, the mutation of sounds, their solidification as part of a spatial order, articulates an acoustic response to the present bodies. The assemblage of noise and sounds makes for an atmosphere and basis of imaginary space in which everything centres around the human body – as the “main character of all utopian ideas” (Foucault). Models of Reality attempts to be a localisation and topography of the body by means of an imaginary cartography.
