We just finished another week working on the music for Laurent Chetouanes chaos - project and it's been a pretty intense few days. Right now we are constructing the overarching musical concept that will in the end engulf the entire show, including solo pieces for each musician by Bach, Cage and Rihm. The tone seems to be getting pretty dark and the emerging sound scapes are often quite intense. In the end there will also be three or four dancers in the show, which might change the feel quite a bit. Especially musical movements we now do while playing that are also integrated into the dancers language might get a whole new life.
It's fun to be a part of building the show from the ground up and the process is very new to me. It's great working with fellow musicians Artiom Shishkov and Tilmann Kanitz, sound designer Johann Günther and the boss Laurent Chetouanes whose mind is a source for all this madness. I'm already looking forward to see where this will go and I'm sure it will be a quite unique thing in the end.
