NEGRO (RSRJ RJRS) by María Salgado and Fran MM Cabeza de Vaca is an audiotext built on a small section of sound material from the combinatorial piece entitled NEGRO (RSRJ RJRS), and belongs to an area of audio textual research into desire, norms, repression, and the night which we have called Jinete Último Reino. Their sound mechanism seeks to capture a moment of desire from which, if focused upon, the grain of deviation in the body can be heard, generally; and the gender binary norm, specifically. NEGRO (RSRJ RJRS) focuses on the inner and outer part of the body that deviates above and below a situation of (somewhat more) real speech, or another that is (somewhat more) fictitious (or poetry).
This piece was first published on radio.museoreinasofia.es and is meant to be listened to with headphones.
