On Wednesday, November 20, 2019, there will be a try-out of (Non) Corpus: God @Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam.
The audience can choose which ‘route’ to follow into the listening experience, according to the ideas of an expert from an Islamic, Christian and secular perspective respectively. Everyone experiences then the same concert together. Afterwards there will be a podium discussion with everyone present.
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.
