PROJECTS & COLLABORATIONS

DUO ( I, II, III & IV)

 

 

DUO is a collaborative project between composers and musicians experimenting with the duo format. Anna Jalving leads the project and for each edition she sets up a new duo constellation as a base for the experiments.

"It has been a necessity for me to create an artistic space where instrumentalists and composers can meet each other as equals in the creative process.

The new contemporary music does not only belong to the composers, but also the musicians who play the works.

It is in this process of sharing and creation that we can really move things!" - Anna Jalving

Ghost Trance Project

Ghost Trance Project is the result of a research project dedicated to performing and exploring the different interpretational possibilities of Anthony Braxton’s Ghost Trance Music (GTM) in both solo as group contexts. 

To explore the unique communal and universal aspect of Braxton’s GTM compositions, how GTM allows for a diverse group of musicians to join forces (trans-idiomatic) and intuitively connect in an intense musical interplay (multi-hierarchic), I have formed the Ghost Trance Septet, a mixed group of musicians coming from different backgrounds, looking for common ground (or not) in performing Braxton’s GTM.

BE MY SUPERSTAR

The interactive opera Be My Superstar is a collaboration between director Alexandra Lacroix and composer Šimon Voseček.
The performance — for everyone above 14 — is based on Yann Verburgh’s H.S. tragédies ordinaires, a touching text about bullying. Sooner or later, from nearby or at a distance, it affects young and old.

The omnipresence of social media, in time as well as in space, hardly leaves any room for escape. Lacroix and Voseček translate everyday harassment in word, image and music thus confronting us with the banality of the violence we are all capable of.
 

soloists:
Astrid Stockman, sopraan
Logan Lopez Gonzalez, contratenor


Musical performance by SPECTRA ENSEMBLE:
