“Tacit” means that which is unspoken, which cannot be described - like the knowledge required to ride a bicycle. […] Thought emerges from the tacit ground. So if we are communicating at the tacit level, then maybe thought is changing. The tacit process is common. It is shared ' - D.B.

David Bohm's inspiring text about dialogue reveals the notion of a tacit knowledge defining our thoughts and actions. The nature of these improvised sessions for Cirera and Miracapillo lies in the unspoken. Here what is tacit goes directly through sound with no aim to be right or wrong - that would be poison for dialogue, as Bohm reminds us. Raw, naked voices from the instrument’s skin. The saxophone activates vibrant objects in its body, while granular machines sample and output grains with the same rough mechanics. Dull transients, resonant metal cans, asynchronous periods and chaotic densities, nothing will smooth out the frictions of thought in its attempt to coherence.
