PROPOSAL

Loïc and Marc are proposing a series of investigations into the tension between improvisation and recording and how it can be used to engage with different spaces and environments around Dundee. So, with you, they want to think about:

  • the situation for improvisation
  • the situation for recording
  • the goal of improvisation
  • the goal of recording improvisation
  • the individual proposal of everybody involved
  • thinking and developing your own music
  • reflecting on the recording of your proposals


With Taku we’ll carry out some simple proposals for doing almost nothing, for re-thinking sound with whatever comes to hand. So, with you, maybe we can think about:

  • small, performative actions
  • maximum effort for minimum outcome
  • agitation
  • setting things in motion
  • working with simple ideas
  • working with whatever comes to hand

WHY MIGHT I GET SOMETHING OUT OF THIS?

Because all of these guys’ work involves elegant, simple ideas and proposals for ways of investigating situations through performance, music, recording, improvisation, responding to the environment, space and place.
