Miguel Prado & Mattin
"Evacuation of the Voice”
10 CD-Box and 44 page booklet with contributions by Rayya Badran, Robin Mackay and Reza Negarestani.

Mattin and Miguel Prado met in A Coruña in 2007 and since then have shared their long running interest in voice within the context of improvisation and noise. Since 2011 they have developed the project of Evacuation of the Voice (EOTV) which also includes Mattin's LP "Object of Thought" and Miguel Prado's text "Geotraumatic Evacuation of the Voice".

The urge for the "evacuation of the voice” appears from its inseparability from the dismantling of the face, identified as the vehicle for the representation of the "I” in capitalism. In 2014, the artists presented ten sessions of one hour each where they tried to performatively evacuate the voice from their bodies, resorting to a process of "subjective depersonalization”. The distancing from the thinking with the refusal of generic aesthetic idioms emerges as strategy to try to "understand our psychological, physiological and neurobiological conditions from an outsider’s perspective”.

The recordings of the 10 sessions are now published together with theoretical reflections by the artists, thinkers and philosophers as contributions for the necessary analyses of the results.
