Active Sound

Movement and sound are deeply connected and our bodies react to sounds in different ways. When we hear the pulsing of electronic music we are moved to dance wildly. In contrast, when we hear the ebb and flow of waves at the beach, our response may be to gently sway. In the picture below, dancers from Ballet Folklorico Aztlán at Chinati's Community Day celebration move to the rhythm of traditional folklorico music. Today, we have created a soundtrack of many sounds, from crowds cheering at a sports game to a fog horn bellowing out to ships at sea. What are the different ways your body reacts to these sounds and is moved to... MOVE? Listen to the audio and take a video of the movements you come up with in response. Share your videos with us at #chinatiSSU or email us at education@chinati.org.

El sonido y el movimiento existen profundamente interconectados, y nuestros cuerpos reaccionan al sonido en diferentes maneras. Cuando escuchamos las pulsaciones de la música electrónica nos movemos para bailar alocadamente. En contraste cuando escuchamos el vaivén de las olas del mar nuestra respuesta es olear gentilmente. En la fotografía de arriba vemos a bailarines del Ballet Folklórico Aztlán en la celebración Community Day de Chinati moviéndose al ritmo de la música tradicional folclórica. Hoy hemos creado una banda sonora compuesta por diversos sonidos, como una multitud aplaudiendo en un evento deportivo a una sirena de vapor bramando en el océano ¿Cuales son las diferentes maneras en las que tu cuerpo reacciona a estos sonidos? ¿Hace que te quieras MOVER? Escucha el audio y graba un video de los movimientos que haces en respuesta a ellos.
