Is there a connection between natural sounds and contemporary music?
What makes a good composition for film?
And how do we use our sourrounding to achieve that?
To analyize and discuss these questions, we will record our own sounds & samples from different objects and nature. The participants will go outside and capture noises & soundscapes, which we will use for a composition or a beat afterwards. We will go into the sounddesign and find out about different stages of composing, arranging and producing for film.

Ανοιχτή πρόβα μετά την πρώτη εβδομάδα residency
Μια έρευνα του διαλόγου ανάμεσα στη μουσική και το κινούμενο σώμα

Ιδέα/σύλληψη: Francesca Pedullà και Lorenzo Gasperoni
Χορογραφία:  Francesca Pedullà και Κωνσταντίνος Κατσαμάκης
Μουσική: Lorenzo Gasperoni

Το έργο ΠΟΛΥΡΥΘΜΙΑ προέρχεται από την επιθυμία να συνδέσουμε την ενυπάρχουσα σοφία της παράδοσης με τις πρόσφατες μελέτες στη σωματική πρακτική, την ανατομία και την εμβιομηχανική τα παραδοσιακά κρουστά και τις σύγχρονες τεχνικές της ηλεκτρονικής μουσικής, πιστεύοντας ότι οι αρχαίες και οι σύγχρονες παραστατικές πρακτικές μπορούν να επικοινωνήσουν και να εμπλουτίσουν οι μεν τις δε.
Η μουσική, ακουστική από τη φύση της, μπορεί να λειτουργήσει αυθύπαρκτα. Σε συμφωνία με τους χορευτές η μουσική συνυπάρχει με την εικόνα. Μπορεί να δημιουργήσει εσωτερικές αντιθέσεις στις αισθήσεις ή να δονηθεί μαζί της ακυρώνοντας ή ενισχύοντας τη δράση τους. Μπορεί να αντικατοπτρίζει σωματικές κινήσεις περισσότερο ή λιγότερο φανερά. Μαζί, η μουσική και η κίνηση δημιουργούν μια μεταμορφωτική γλώσσα, η οποία αποτελεί βασικό στοιχείο της μεταξύ τους σχέσης, παίρνοντας το ρόλο ενός τρίτου performer. Η εμφανής ένταση ή σύγκρουση μεταξύ της αναλογικής και ψηφιακής μουσικής ανοίγει προοπτικές και ορίζοντες.

Lorenzo Gasperoni

He is graduated in 1989 in classical percussion in Conservatorio di Verona and Civica Scuola di Musica in Milan. The same year following his inclination towards being an “eternal student”, he started his trips to discover the ethnical rhythms, going several times to Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso, Senegal, Benin, Southern India, Morocco, and to Cuba. Now Lorenzo is a well known composer and percussionist actually performing with several band such as Mamud Band, La Frontera, Artchipel Orchestra all over Europe. During his career he wrote music for important dance- theater shows. Fundamental aspect of his research is the relation with dance, to find a way to talk and play the same language of the body in movement. Lorenzo has been playing with prestigious world-renowned musician and dancer such as Lester Bowie, Fred Wesley, Brian Auger, Paco Sery, Famoudou Konate, Herns Duplan, Frey Faust, Mama Adama Camara, Francesca Pedullà

116th Dream

“I am about t’ sketch You a picture of what goes on around here some- times. though I don’t understand too well myself what’s really happening. my poems are written in a rhythm of unpoetic distortion/ divided by pierced ears (…) with a melodic purring line of descriptive hollowness — seen at times through dark sunglasses an’ other forms of psychic explosion.”
Bob Dylan

Η πρόθεση αυτής της δημιουργίας είναι να μεταδώσει μ’ έναν χορό και μια πρωτότυπη μουσική τέσσερα κομμάτια του Bob Dylan: Motorpsycho Nightmare, Bob Dylan’s 115th dream, Subterranean Homesick Blues και Love Minus Zero/No Limit. Αυτά αποκαλύπτουν μια πληθώρα χαρακτήρων που αναμειγνύονται σε παράλογες καταστάσεις. Με μια σουρεαλιστική διάθεση, το 116ο όνειρο είναι σαν όνειρο που ψάχνει να βρει εξήγηση, μια ανοιχτή πόρτα σε πολλαπλές ερμηνείες.

Χορογραφία: Εβίτα Πιταρά & Cédric Gagneur

Moving Landscapes I
Dancing the elemental body: The body that measures the landscape, the body in intercourse with weather, the body kissing mass of peat, the body in love-death relation to the day…

The Moonwalk Lab is a itinerant dance research duo (or group) that works mainly outside the studio, in contact with nature.Through observing and meeting different landscapes and its elements, we collect images, sounds, stories and explore how to put them into motion.
The Moonwalk Lab is a work in progress project coming from the Moonwalk Experience, an itinerant dance laboratory in nature aimed at exploring the meeting between body and landscape.
Moonwalk is meant to become a danced reflection on the world and its natural, human-built, symbolic, energetic, psychological or legal borders. It is an opportunity to question, through the body, our way of perceiving, of relating to the earth, to nature, to human constructions, to the group.
During this last month we have travelled around the island of Syros diving into the local landscape, encountering people, words, sounds, stories, myths. In this occasion we have given ourselves a little challenge bringing our experiences into the studio and see what happens when we reconnect with the souvenirs of landscapes, with memory and oblivion.
We would like to share with you some of these images through a short performance and a projection on Saturday 10th, at 20.30h.

Anis Ouazzani and Ainara Lopez come from several backgrounds in dance and movement practices and are organizers of The Moonwalk Project, an itinerant dance project in nature within a moon cycle. They are currently on residency at the Akropoditi Dance Theatre.

An Imaginary Country

Οι χάρτες είναι αποδεδειγμένα ένα ευέλικτο μέσο για να εκφράσουμε την περιέργειά μας για τη φύση και την κατανόηση του φυσικού τοπίου γύρω μας.
Όποιο κι αν είναι το θέμα τους, ακόμα και οι πιο στοιχειώδεις, έχουν μια εγγενή ομορφιά, κάτι ελκυστικό στο πώς ταξινομούν τα πράγματα. Θέτουν τα όρια μεταξύ τέχνης και επιστήμης, γνωστού και άγνωστου, καλού και κακού.
Ελπίζοντας να δημιουργήσει έναν “βαθιά προσωπικό χάρτη” η παράσταση “An Imaginary Country” είναι μια εξερεύνηση στις προοπτικές της μεταφορικής χαρτογράφησης, δίνοντας χώρο στη φαντασία.
