Exploring silence as utopia becomes a political act in contrast to systemic horror vacui. Exploring time as subjectivity becomes enactment and thus an act of resistance. In sites of sonic invasion and wherever an objective time is established, the body can free itself from this oppression—which is paradoxically silent and constant—and can propose an active and profound dissidence, extending its subjectivity between subjectivities. Our goal is to explore the concepts of time and silence in their relationship to the body as soma, and its projection to the audible and the visible. To that end, we will first propose previous theoretical frameworks (Erika Fisher Lichte, Geisha Fontaine, Michel Foucault, John Cage, Luigi Nono), and then engage in a practical exploration (Practice led Research) that allows us to yield, as a result, a performatic space of reflection around these themes.
