Description

… I try to describe what living is like. And I was thinking that living consists of thinking and not thinking …”

(Thinking/Not Thinking: Martin Creed) Video

 

After the "Festival Genialer Dilletanten", 1981 in Berlin, especially in the environment of art schools, an artistic vehemence developed, which was characterized by cross-genre experimentation and the use of new electronic devices.

Painters played in bands or founded clubs, musicians made Super 8 films. Dada and Fluxus were revitalized. Virtuosity was often deliberately avoided. The non-ability, the resistance against conventions, the art of forgetting and unlearning were supposed to open the way to an unrestrained power of expression, a new expressivity.

The aim of the course is to develop a musical structure with the available possibilities. To come to solutions by chance, or to a conception by improvisation. Constituting a musical structure via the experiment - the rehearsal. To give way to the ego, to the collective authorship. The urge to do is stronger than the search for perfection. Questioning the “right” and giving the wrong a chance. Confronting the public.

The course will be roughly divided into four sections, with the main focus on PRODUCTION, the practical work.

1. sounding out the "skills" of the course participants
2. probing the possibilities (equipment)
3. PRODUCTION (rehearsal room)
4. public performance (Angewandte Festival / Paulusplatz)

Minimal previous knowledge in making music would be an advantage, as well as your own instrument or equipment.

Examination Modalities

Be sure to keep all appointments! Committed and active participation in the rehearsals. Development of a common musical concept.
