How to guard an impro singer who has ‘the ball’? How to find a loophole in the defense through which the music can express itself? 😀
Yesterday and today, we enjoy asking these and other unusual questions to ourselves during the research we are doing for November Music 2019 and Loop-Copy-Mutate: Ball Games. We had really inspiring rehearsals and are traveling to Den Bosch tomorrow for two days of artist-in-residency on the beautiful November Music festival.
We share our laboratory research on Friday, 8 November, at 16:00 and Saturday, 9 November, at 20:30. On Saturday with live basketball players present in the musical lab!
Invited by November Music in Den Bosch – one of the Netherlands most prestigious music festivals – the Genetic Choir is developing this autumn a new sibling of the Loop-Copy-Mutate project from 2017. This time, the singers delve into the musicality of another type of ‘everyday sounds’: sport sounds.
On two days during the upcoming festival, the singers explore with Loop-Copy-Mutate: Ball Games how to create music from the sounds and idiosyncrasies of a basketball match.
On Friday 8 November, we will involve November Music audience to work with the sounds we recorded, and on Saturday 9 November, the singers will also interact directly with basketball players. Both days, you will experience small ad-hoc concerts by Genetic Choir singers and laptopist Robert van Heumen, while they involve the audience to listen with new ears to sounds they think they already know.
A new set of eight Genetic Choir sessions on Friday morning (10:00-12:30) is kicking off on 13 september. We work with a fixed group (now 14) to deepen the work from session to session. One or two singers could still hook on, if you are interested.
