Dorian Wood - Canto de Todes, Movement I (Excerpt)

Dorian Wood’s Canto de Todes is an immersive 12-hour composition and installation. Inspired by a lyric of the late Chilean singer and songwriter Violeta Parra, the Creative Capital-awarded project emphasizes the urgency of folk music as a vessel for social change. https://www.dorianwood.com/cantodetodes Movement I Dorian Wood: voice Alexander Noice: guitar Sophia Potter: cello Performed at Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Omaha, May 6, 2023 Canto de Todes, composed by Dorian Wood Copyright 2023 Why Are You Doing This Music (ASCAP) Video recorded by Dan Thompson Audio recorded by Keith Rodger Edited by Dorian Wood hey god you want i should be a lamb of rising flesh of bitter salt of colored glass god say what god damn you want i should steal some bread and break it down into a vision a dirty cloud god cum cloud god cum cloud we here we are cold rapturous dust it is beginning no wasted thoughts no screeching halt no tidying up no time at all here's my claw where words cannot strain your eyes love ponder clearly ponder long why here now and for who it's coming and where it's gone and why we took it sitting down for so long strain your eyes love so you warble out a sermon from which to hang your skin so foggy damp to tempt you in o how i love that you love me and how we love to see it breathe a love that flexes petals over its leaves a root of tributary weakened knees and who is romance for you plead strain your eyes love you my friend today but seer forever babe so very here to hold you bent and burdened in this space we stare down at those who deny the cloud riddled with anger and pox and things the hearts they keep in cupboards deep with fascist beans and other shapeless antiquities i knew the moment you'd arrived you'd disappeared from space and time you prepped the cannons and raised the gate and batter-rammed right through my heart so i want this world for you to twist to serve with sweaty open fist to position gently on my cheek as kisses do and kisses should and you go cleaving through this wood as if the wind caused hell to move as if the ocean spray was you as if your shout could clear this room strain your eyes love strain your eyes love strain your eyes love strain your eyes strain your eyes strain your eyes but you bring a noose tho it's not a noose so it's not a portal so it won't lead you away from pain no strain your eyes strain your eyes strain your eyes love just be still my love just be still my love you're all i've got

Dorian Wood — Invasiva

Air, in both its stillness and its movements, is what compels INVASIVA, the latest release by multidisciplinary artist Dorian Wood. In early 2022, Dorian set out to investigate the root of her anxiety—and how her breathing is both affected by, and complicit to, her mental state—during an artist's residency at Loghaven in Knoxville, Tennessee. Upon touring the campus, she learned of the Whittle House, an abandoned cabin on the grounds that had not been inhabited for many years, set apart by the other nearby, fully-restored cabins. In encountering this site, Dorian connected with the idea of isolation as a catalyst for disrepair. She came to understand how separation could trigger a fear of losing self-awareness and the inability to escape.  INVASIVA is a document of the artist meandering physically and mentally between two forms of confinement: "mandated" and "self-imposed". Like an abandoned house, the composition is filled with a stillness that seems both uninhabited and anticipatory. Gradual shifts in tone build an atmosphere of meditation, and droning notes are sustained like a deeply held breath. And yet, despite the fear of quiet isolation which permeates the piece, INVASIVA swells with slow respiration, revels in the wind, and echoes with gentle reminders of outside life.  The work is one that emulates a contemplative state which is constant threat—and perseveres.  Comprised of the recorded stillness within the Whittle House, and sounds captured in the office lobby of Dorian's breathing specialist in Los Angeles, INVASIVA is a quiet, ethereal triumph over suffocating loneliness. It is a piece that is filled with inhalation, anticipation, reflection,  exhalation, release—it is filled with air.
