friction-frontier (from the ongoing series "fertile action")
This sound poem is part of "acción fértil (fertile action)", an ongoing series of interdisciplinary works.
friction-frontier is concerned not only with the current phenomenon of regarding migrations and geopolitical borders but it also explores semantic borders, the meaning of words in between words, words that are becoming, transitioning, and the perpetual friction of language & languages. The poem is also a call to action that is both political and spiritual. Through friction and repetition, words become pure action.
