INSECTA is an ephemeral radio installation and vocal performance in collaboration with the insects that inhabit Wave Farm. Luminescent balloon membranes become microphones to explore experimental passages between sounding beings (insects, air, voices) as a way to traverse a relationship with otherness, non-normative knowledge, and sustainable sociality. Curci and Genoud aim to contribute with the practice of collective voices (including other species in that collectiveness) capable of telling new stories, imagining and producing shared and livable futures.

Florencia Curci works as a sound and radio artist, performer and curator. Since 2017 she is Director of CASo (Sound Art Center), an institution dependent on the Ministry of Culture of Argentina promoting artistic research on sound, experimental music and social acoustics. Co-curator of RUIDO Festival. Her installations, radio pieces and performances explore collective sounding and listening strategies and were commissioned by KunstRadio, AMEE, CA2M (Madrid), Centro Cultural Kirchner (Arg) and presented internationally at Festival Aural (MX), MediaLab Prado (Madrid), Tsonami Festival (Chile), among others. florenciacurci.com

Agustin Genoud works as a performer, musician and scholar in the fields of contemporary voice, post-humanism and new media. He creates expanded voice techniques that disrupt and interfere with the humanly assigned sounds to the vocal tract and tries to expand those capacities through machinic and animalistic behaviors. As a scholar and lecturer Genoud’s work centers around post-humanism, new materialisms, expanded voice performances and biopolitics. Genoud teaches and conducts research in Buenos Aires at the Universidad Nacional de las Artes (New Media Department) and Tres de Febrero University. agustingenoud.cc
