“Every object presupposes the continuity of a flow; every flow, the fragmentation of the object”
Deleuze/ Guattari- Anti Oedipus

Bricolage is a piece dedicated to the art of sonic scavenging, and to sonic omnivorousness. Instruments, objects, tools, performers, and actuators – all are regarded as carriers of intensity, as bodies through which sound is constantly flowing in all directions. The interest for me in this work was to reveal the different ways in which all sonic creatures, the refined as well as the disarticulated, the designed, and the serendipitous, can open themselves to new possible connections, territories, and trajectories.
