Started in 2019 by producer/musician Jaka Skapin and director/videographer Pavel Radu, Bodies of Sound emerged from a series of self-funded sessions that brought together hand-picked vocal improvisers, dance artists and videographers/sound engineers in order to delve deep into the process of collaborative improvisation tied to a specific location/story/narrative.
Since then, we have travelled to the Berlin wall as well as shot at the London Dock and a flat in South East London under a Sound & Music and British Music Collection commission. Over the coming months, we plan to share what we’ve produced with you, as well as plan the next stage of the project that will hopefully involve more dancers and dance companies, vocalists and musicians, as well as producers and sound artists.
You can watch our pieces here.
