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

DANCE BASE, EDINBURGH
12th-17th August @ 16:30

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.

£10 (£8 conc)
Running time 50 minutes
Contains strong language & nudity

This year, we open the festival with a survey of the many British composers and performers who have chosen to swim against the tide.

In a rare reunion since their Obscure Records days, Gavin Bryars and Christopher Hobbs will resurrect several key experimental works of the era. Alongside this John Tilbury will premiere piano sonatas by fellow experimentalist John White. Meanwhile, subterranean explorer Philip Thomas showcases the work of two composers - James Clarke and Tim Parkinson - who have sidestepped conventional musical thought in two very different ways.

It is through improvisation that some of Britain's most radical artists have found their voice. Tonight we witness the legendary solo vocals of Maggie Nicols (pictured above), and the electronic sitar improv of Poulomi Desai.

None of these artists, however, strays more terrifyingly from convention than Consumer Electronics (pictured below), active since the early 1980s. Their recent album Estuary English provides tonight's focus.

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.
