Something Stuck in My Throat

Artist: Alexandre Porres

This is a very simple noisy improvisation performance. Piezo microphones are stuck on the performer's throat with black duct tape. Wires coming out of it evoke an eerie bionic look, and is the feature that gives the name to the performance.

The feeling of having something stuck in your throat is that of not being able to express yourself properly, and the byproduct feelings of anguish, frustration and anger are depicted in the performance. The performer's mouth is also covered with duct tape. This increases the visual tension, and restricts the sounds to be solely produced by the throat, and to be captured by the cheap Piezo microphones.
