Jacek Doroszenko feat. Ewa Doroszenko: Bodyfulness

In June this year, the UK-based Audiobulb label will release a new album, Bodyfulness by Jacek Doroszenko, known for his Soundreaming project, solo albums on the French Eilean label and the American Time Released Sound, and the Mammoth Ulthana duo. This time the musician invited Ewa Doroszenko, an intermedia artist, with whom they work together in the field of contemporary art, travel as part of Artist-in-Residence, and create joint exhibitions.

Bodyfulness is not only an album of musical compositions but also a visual project in which the artists try to capture the atmosphere of the physical and virtual presence. In the Bodyfulness project, Ewa Doroszenko prepared a series of sensual digital photographs and took part in the recording of selected pieces. The artists say this about their project:

We are a creative couple. In our symbiotic everyday reality, art blends with life. We operate in the era of digital dependencies. Contemporary technologies increasingly affect our lives and work, and the dynamics of their development make them more and more integrated with reality. Our situation seems to be dominated by virtual images and content – digital immersion is an inseparable element of every day we spend together. There is no longer a dichotomy between the virtual and real worlds, we exist in a new, hybrid space in which boundaries extend beyond the tangible experience. Fascinated by these phenomena, in the Bodyfulness project we try to capture the coexistence of physical and virtual life, talk about the intimate experience of the body online and offline, to show a subjective audiovisual study of the way modern technology and culture modify our intimate relationships.

In the Bodyfulness project, the artists were also inspired by currently popular internet practices: online meditations on YouTube, recordings of ASMR sessions, naive self-improvement manuals, smartphone applications that reduce stress and help you fall asleep. Following the current growing interest in rituals allowing to reach a state of deeper consciousness (or at least simulate it), the Doroszenko duo added a discreet musical commentary on virtualization and digitalization of reality.

Bodyfulness consists of a series of digital photographs and musical compositions that reveal the potentials and paradoxes of digital intimacy. The works are accompanied by a video that refers to popular online guided meditations, listening to which helps to relax or concentrate. The sound compositions are partly based on recordings of daily beauty and relaxation rituals, evening conversations, meetings, close-ups, including virtual ones – full of digital blurs, distortions, and imperfections. Building on the performativity of these activities, the artists experimented with the post-organic body to present their own version of sonic corporeality.

The instrumentation used in the recordings goes beyond classical electronic sound – Jacek Doroszenko: electronics, prepared piano, field recordings, recordings of sound installations, analogue synthesizers, bells, string instruments; Ewa Doroszenko: skin and body parts, contact microphones, synthetic granules. This specific mixture made it possible to perform compositions of an intimate and saturated character. Closely recorded musical activities and those that by their repetition imitate music or bypass this category direct the Bodyfulness project towards sound art.
