Erica van Loon presents the soft launch of her project The Second the Water Wets Your Face, Reflexes of Your Aquatic Ancestors Kick In, a new audio work developed in collaboration with composer Daniel Steiner. Relax into a bed large enough to notice from outer space, make new memories, make weightless somersaults and let yourself sink towards a sandy dance floor, with clicking creatures that vibrate your skull. For this project Van Loon collaborates with composer Daniel Steiner and had Alix de Massiac as her sparring partner throughout developing the script for the spoken text. Sources for the script were among others conversations Van Loon had with (neuro) anatomist Cindy Cleypool, zoologist Tacyana Oliveira and marine ecologist Maarten de Brauwer.
