Divisible Light, is a concert performance attempting to evoke scenery between high pitch resonance and solid mass – a collision between ambiguous anti-form versus form and ludicrous gestures, manifested in shapes and sounds.
The soundscape is an atmospheric momentum with contrapoints between vocal overtones, deep drone and subtle elements in the violin. The violin becoming a singing voice and the vocal an instrument embracing each other in harmony and disharmony.
Marie-Louise’s interest in polyphonic overtone singing lies in its cultural and evolutionary development and its hypothesized place in the early stages of human evolution. Where the singing was believed to have a defensive impact on the hominid and later human body.
