Corpora Aliena ‘Dreams and Shadows’
Dreams and Shadows – an evening of thoughtful meditations featuring; the composer Bernhard Living, who will perform a live version of his digitally-based ‘Composition 2017/06 (A Coincidence of Light)’ – a work made up of repeating and evolving layers of sound with noise and fragmented harmonies;
Pascal Savy will present a new electronic piece inspired by the strange ontological realm of dreams. His live composition will explore the space that lies between existence and non-existence in which oneiric memories cast a haunting shadow onto reality itself; and under her new alias of Avsluta, Lucie Štěpánková will be performing a minimalist/progressive set – combining synthesized compositions, abstracted field recordings and live improvised interaction with materials and objects.
In addition to the music performances, there will be a screening of new videos produced by the Portuguese artists Pedro Barateiro, Rui Calçada Bastos, João Pedro Fonseca, Luisa Jacinto and Nikolai Nekh – whose works are filled with contemplative observations of time, space, feelings, lives, lost expectations or phantasmagoric dreams.
The Dreams and Shadows concert is an exciting opportunity to see and hear some of the leading international musicians and artists who are a part of the contemporary experimental music scene.
Corpora Aliena is curated by Dasha Birukova and Bernhard Living
