TAPED - DARMSTÄDTER FERIENKURSE FÜR NEUE MUSIK 2018

Category: music for movement, transdisciplinary collaboration, multi-media work

Collaborators:  

Felix Nagl (Reel-to-Reel Tape Recorder) 

Constance Diard, Enzo Pauchet, Fang-Yun Yang (Dancers) 

 

This interdisciplinary project re-imagines the past, re-visits the pathos of the ‘80s and re-interprets it in a new way. The effect of the transdisciplinary collaboration, which took shape during the two-weeks-long Dance and Music Workshops formed and led by composer Stefan Prins (Belgium) and choreographer Daniel Linehan (Belgium/US) at the 47th International Summer Courses for New Music Darmstadt. We focused on creating a new quality based on re-visted archived images (e.g. music videos) from the decade that began on 1st January 1980 and ended on 31st December 1989, using a creation process of deconstruction, and reweaving through transformation. We were working collectively researching conceptual approaches and practical strategies as well as the process of close collaboration and experimentation. The goal was to create a new quality using different media as well as digging through old references to re-create them.
