Silvia et Deborah se rencontrent en 2003 à Reggio Emilia, en Italie. Depuis, leurs chemins ne cessent pas de se croiser. A Paris elles découvrent la scène expérimentale française, se joignent à l'ensemble Dedalus et collaborent, entre autres, avec des compositeurs comme Tom Johnson, Jürg Frey, Christian Wolff. Depuis 2008 Silvia et Deborah travaillent régulièrement avec Pascale Criton, figure centrale de la composition microtonale, connue pour son utilisation de diverses scordaturas avec micro-intervalles. En 2010 elles commencent une intense collaboration avec la compositrice Eliane Radigue, qui aboutit à des compositions en solo, duo, trio et quintet dans son récent projet Occam Océan. Plus récemment elles ont créé des œuvres de Philip Corner et Tim Parkinson, écrites spécialement pour leur duo. Originaires de la région Emilie-Romagne, Silvia et Deborah ont entamé un travail de réécriture de chants populaires traditionnels des villages, des rizières et de la résistance. Ecoute intense, exploration du geste, à la recherche de nouvelles possibilités expressives.

Time With People @ HCL

Time With People @ HCL

From September to December 2016, Chicago based collective a.pe.ri.od.ic will be rehearsing Time With People weekly at High Concept Laboratories.

Using absurdity, humor, and non-narrativity to redefine notions of music and memory, Time With People is an hour-long music and theatre work by British composer Tim Parkinson (b. 1973). As Parkinson writes, the opera in seven scenes for ten people and assorted objects “redefines fundamentals of opera from its 16th century origins . . . reconceived from elements of 21st century post-historical culture.”

The piece hearkens back to the traditional sense of an opera as a collection of works, yet upends tradition by largely removing music and the orchestra, leaving behind only fragments, both musical and literal: recorded excerpts of Handel and Rossini begin and end the work, while a trash-strewn set serves as an orchestra of found objects as the performers wade through it.

a.pe.ri.od.ic is a collective of composers, instrumentalists and vocalists with experience in a myriad of experimental music practices. The group has a history of interpreting distinctive pieces using a collaborative rehearsal process, deriving meaning and intention from oblique prose scores with great sensitivity.

While at High Concept Labs, a.pe.ri.od.ic will use the studio for their rehearsal process and participate in artist critiques. HCL will host the U.S. premiere of this unique production as a Works-in-Progress showing before a.pe.ri.od.ic tours the production elsewhere in Chicago and the Midwest.
