Tacit or Loud: where is the knowledge in art?
Symposium and festival for artistic research
Nov 16-Dec 3

Dec 3, 13:00
Facet II

This open lab session aims to investigate how experimental research on collaborative creative processes of improvisation can be experienced, problematized and communicated. Facet II: open lab is part of the project PRISM: facets of Impromans in my PhD project. In PRISM the duo Impromans (pianist Conny Antonov and me) together with improvising light designer Kristofer Langerbeck and me investigate how discourses of visual bodily representation in traditional Lied performance settings can be problematized by the integration of music and light in improvised performances in various contexts. It is carried out as a series of musico-visual improvisatory events during 2014/15, such as Facet I: open lab at the Inter Arts Center in June (where this concept was created), and Facet III: Suellska Salongen at Suellska Villan in November (where we will create a new concept as a paraphrase on a 19th century salon).
In Facet I we used a white ‘fourth wall’ between musicians and audience, where the performing bodies are projected in coloured facets, created and transformed by the light designer with a software that reacts to the musical dynamics. This format can be described as a collaborative, imaginary and audiovisual playground, or performative space, for our improvisatory interaction, where audial and visual intentions intertwine and transform in a multitude of layers of situated presences. In the open lab, we aim to invite the audience to take part in a joint investigation on (i) audial and visual aspects of experiences and strategies of the situated musical, imagery and narrative interactions, and, (ii) how insights on and through creative processes could be communicated to a wider audience.
