A performance often dubbed as a “live”-composition
session. Herein the artist projected sheetmusic, written
in arrows and sometimes combined with text, onto a
white rectangle on the faced wall. Thereafter, once
such a sheet of music, printed on plastic, was put
down, the saxophonist (Ossip Blits) and the two female
singers (Meis Vranken & Chen Yiyi) would interpret the
symbols as they would seem fit. And as they, both the
“musicians” as the “dancers”, were all wearing earplugs,
something quite abstract was born. Timesignatures were
shifting and octaves were disregarded.
Simultaneously the 4 “dancers” (Manuela Rosso, Joost
Koster, Juni Mun & Adriana Lasheras) were looping a
simple 8-step choreography, based on part of the lyrical
content, finishing with a slap on their own ass.
Once again, thanks to the earplugs, the tempo of
movement shifted over time and through this a
polyrythmic percussive element was achieved.
The lyrical content itself was based on quotes picked up
by the artist, from his surroundings, over the course of
