On the occasion of the launch of his book “The Amplification of Soul” on the 1st November 2014, Gilles Aubry will present a performance of improvisation with recordings documenting a spiritual deliverance service recorded in 2011 in Kinshasa, Kongo at SAVVY Contemporary in Berlin. During collective praying sessions involving speaking-in-tongues and a massive sound-system, the church members oppose evil spirits causing various existential problems. The sound, powerful and over-distorted, attests both on their supernatural powers and their capacity for soul amplification. By extension, the performance also questions the devotion of noise music fans, addressing existing cultural boundaries between taste, faith and perception.
