Martín Bakero has presented performances, lectures, films, expositions, installations and radio actions in many locations throughout Europe; North, Central and South-America. He has experimented with combinatorial, permutation, genetic, astrobiology, quantum mechanics, sound, vision and psychics arts. He studied electro-acoustic composition at the Paris municipal music conservatory and he has a PHD in psychopathology. He teaches in the Universities of Paris, México and Chile. He works rehearsing about severe personality disorders and sound poetry. He created the pneumatic and electropneumatic poetry and now he is developing the “Acousemantic” poetry. He made creative sound residences and performances in Avatar (Québec), National center for arts (México) and Proposta (Barcelona). He is member of several artistic collectives: LaBoRaToiRe, Motor Nightingale, Buzos Tácticos, Casagrande, M’Other, Futures Primitives, Synchronizer, Frères Singuliers and pnEUmAtIkOs, where he works with other artistes, scientists, and mystics… Those projects are some work in progress about the links between poetry, sound, vision and reality. He created the festival Festina Lente and the Laboratory of electropneumatic poetry (Laboratoire d’electropoésie acousmantique) in Paris. In his poetry actions, he drives a trance where the breath becomes alive. He uses moving poems projected on his body, on his collaborators and screens. He also spatializes the voices in multi-phony, modified in live by acusmantic filters. He breaks the boundaries between sound, sense, senses, non-sense, smell, vision, action, hallucination, gesture: always seeking the opening of the limits of poetry and new realities.
