Space Chicks In Trouble
“rythym, noise, sex. basically dance music for aliens”
Space Chicks in Trouble is an electroacustic improvisation duo based in Bologna (IT). It’s composed by the bodies of Manuel Prat (Barcellona, 1979) and Daniele Giannotta (Catania, 1982), inhabited by the lesbo alien couple Gordella and Dronelia.
Improvisation as narrative speculation. Speculation as exploration, discovery, learning through projection, analogy, contrast, experimentation and error.
The way the Chicks tells their adventure to the audience, by describing alien landscapes and acting into them. A kind of outer space chronicles.
Improvisation is freedom of movement, a formal mechanic to build everchanging scenarios that suddenly transform themself into something totally different, in the same way as teleport or hyperspace travels do.
Always in travel, always in trouble. Have you ever imagined an alien trying to boil an egg? Communicating in weird ways with pots, sliders, buttons and any object that becomes the interface to percive and react at any time, in any place, at any trouble they have to face.
The control panel.
The Chicks enjoy their astonishing experiences by travelling with their low-cost spaceships. 3 mixers, 1 laptop, fx boxes, midi controllers, joysticks, tangles of cables, microfones, flutes, saxophones, jew’s harps, pianolas… Patching, sampling, processing, mixing and remixing. Until the egg is boiled, if there’s someone still waiting for it… and if it’s still an egg.
A fiction of coming-things based on things-on-hand.
