Born in Vigo and currently based in Barcelona, the musician and visual artist Laura León created the video art collection Percepciones de un Silencio from lomographic photography. Featuring musicians from across the Mediterranean (both European and African), the Middle East, Spanish-speaking Latin America, South-East Asia among others, these twelve scores represent twelve individual iterations of Laura’s film, released by Phantom Limb as a collection to make up an “album” of wilfully non-standard construction.
Each of the twelve film scores teases out new meaning to its visual accompaniment, but the film does not change across these twelve versions. With each new soundtrack comes a new experience - some are abstract, others sweet; some are nostalgic where others are intense. The results - as an album of music - comprise twelve pieces of exactly the same length, with a unifying theme, yet borne from a multitude of wildly distinct processes, backgrounds (lingual, geographical, cultural and musical), deliveries and creative desires.
