Grapeshade

Biliana Voutchkova – violine/stimme, Klaus Janek – bass/elektronik, Lisanne Goodhue (guest), Ingo Reulecke – raum bewegung/tanz

Grapeshade widmet sich dem Ausweiten der Beziehungen zwischen Musik/Sound und Tanz/Bewegung-Improvisationen und Echtzeit Komposition. Die Gruppe sucht nach Ausgeglichenheit zwischen den verschiedenen Elementen, wo weder Sound noch Bewegung die führende Rolle einnimmt und sich die wohlbekannte Tendenz, dass es eine Haupt- und eine Begleitstimme gibt, auflöst. Grapeshade balanciert auf einem weiten Spektrum, das der Performance Form gibt – Antwort/Wiederholung, Reaktion/Negation individueller Impulse, Minimalismus/Reduktion, Fragmentierung, Symbiose, Unterbrechung, Verwirrung und viele andere Strategien, das gegenwärtige Momentum in verschiedene künstlerische Formen und Aggregatszustände zu transformieren. www.grapeshade.weebly.com  Grapeshade on Vimeo 1  Grapeshade on Vimeo 2
