VISUEL DanceMusic

dan/ce = m/usic = da/nce = musi/c

dan/ce = m/usic = da/nce = musi/c is a dance performance for two dancers and one digital music creation system.
Choreographer Bernard Baumgarten and sound artist Patrick Muller get together to elaborate this multidisciplinary project which will try to reverse the dependence of dance on the rigid monologue of music.
In dan/ce = m/usic = da/nce = musi/c, the dancers themselves generate and control the music by means of a responsive and interactive system: the music becomes the slave to the dancers' presence and movements. However, the aim of this system is not to generate a random order of sounds, but to produce a structured, coherent and dramaturgical piece of dance and music, flexible enough to be individual at every performance.
