Encyclopédie de la parole is an artistic project exploring the spoken word in all its forms. (www.encyclopediedelaparole.org)
Since September 2007, Encyclopédie de la parole has been collecting various recordings and indexing them according to specific phenomena that make up how people speak, such as pacing, chorality, timbre, address, overemphasis, spacing, residue, saturation or melody. From this collection composed now by more than a thousand of audio documents, Encyclopédie de la parole makes use of these recordings to produce works of sound art, performances, shows, conferences, concerts and installations. The project is led by a collective of poets, actors, visual artists, ethnographers, musicians, curators, directors, choreographers and radio show producers. Its motto is: “We are all experts in speaking.”
I've been working with this collective for the last 7 years, and in this workshop, I intend to share some of the approaches we use on how to work with these audio documents, as well as how to relate to a foreign language that we have never spoken before. The workshop will be taught in Portuguese and will be important if you feel comfortable speaking in English.
