« The language of the woods, the impossibility of saying only with the dominant and signifying language. Then there are other possible languages, emanating from an immediate reality and more ancestral : the language of noises, mutes, ecosystems, biotopes, improvised songs and tattered words … language of care, shouts, and breaths. »
Voices and language are its instrument and tool of research.
From the 90s, between a vocal and musical learning several years in Paris, and a stay in Mumbai, Natacha Muslera develops its research in the field of experimental music, sound poetry and plastic arts (performance, sound creations, videos, films), within several groups (Natïmbalès, Asa nisi masa, Tsikamoï) and common tests (Terrain vague, Le shni, Toc-toc).
The artist is specifically interested by the choir, as unheard of potential, intrinsically micro-political. She conceives and puts into practice different choirs without chief, and groups : choeur in situ, choeur terrain vague, choeur présocratique, cent coeur, choeur tac-til
From the year 2000, Natacha practices free improvisation and noise music, actually she creates for different way of composing and interpreting, without visual support, a digital writing by contact and blind partition.
Among his recent and old friends and collaborators : Choeur tac-til and Lionel Marchetti, LE UN, Michel Doneda, Aude Romary, Cécile Duval, eRikm, Christophe Cardoën, Angelica Castello, Jérôme Noetinger, Biliana Voutchkova, Catherine Jauniaux, Nicolas Gerber, Jean Luc Guionnet, Eric La Casa, Oracle, Floy Krouchi, Keja Ho Kramer, Terminal Beach, Jean Sebastien Mariage, Wilfried Welding…
Its research intensifies thanks to the laboratories, nomadic workshops, in with the artist shares a free vocal practice, and develops an experimental pedagogy.
The concerns of the artist experiment the vocal space. « The vocal’ space questions the language’s foundations. It works the question of origins. It functions like an egnima. It questions the voice itself as the origin. »
