Extremely Bad Dancing to Extremely French Music by Karl Jay Lewin and Matteo Fargion

Extremely Bad Dancing to Extremely French Music by Karl Jay Lewin and Matteo Fargion

Karl Jay-Lewin - choreographer
Matteo Fargion - composer
Tim Parkinson - piano

Funny, sad and rebellious, the show spans the overrated, the understated and the personal. It ranges in temperament and emotion from extremely calm and extremely harmonic, to extremely loud and extremely vulgar. The live music, text and dance duo challenge and confound audience assumptions and expectations as they flip between the absurdly humorous and quietly poignant.

Saturday 24 May, 15:30
Universal Hall, Findhorn
Running time 50 minutes
Contains strong language & nudity

Extremely Bad Dancing: £10 (adults), £5 (u18) on the door

PARKINSON SAUNDERS: THINGS TO DO

kings place

Music / Sunday, 11 May 2014 - 4:00pm / Hall Two

Tim Parkinson - Time With People, Opus 1 (2012)
Stefan Thut - two strings and boxes (2) (2012) Premiere
Matteo Fargion - Songbook (2014) Premiere
James Saunders - you say what to do (2014)
John White - Wine Connoisseurs Shoot-Out (2014) Premiere
Travis Just - It's All True (2010/14) Premiere


What we have here is zeitgeist.

In 2013 Parkinson Saunders asked many composers to give them things to do and make new pieces for them for no instruments or instrumental ability.

Many tried. Some succeeded. What remains is what will be heard.

Domestic items, voices, instruments, from order to chaos, from calm to fury.

Happy unforseen crosscurrents have emerged between composers working in isolation.

It's possible that there might not be any music in the programme, but the post-apocalyptic compost heap is full of sound.

Object Collection presents Robert Ashley's Automatic Writing @ Cafe Oto

Object Collection presents Robert Ashley

Object Collection perform Automatic Writing by Robert Ashley @ Cafe Oto, London

Object Collection present a live, staged adaptation of Robert Ashley’s seminal 1979 studio composition Automatic Writing alongside a performance of their own New York Girls - an exercise in extremes, and a fanfare for the dispersed. False pretenses, controlled feedback, plagiarism, and precisely-placed things. A performance for objects, voices, instruments, and video, it is developed from Object Collection's March 2012 duo performances in Italy.

"I went toward the idea of sounds having a kind of magical function - of being able to actually conjure characters. It seemed to me that in a sort of psycho-physical sense sounds can actually make you see things, can give you images that are quite specific." – Robert Ashley on Automatic Writing

On a stage strewn with television monitors, video cameras, and dim light, Object Collection invokes these four characters, crafting an environment that aims to heighten the enigma of the original.
