Samson Young (in collaboration with Michael Schiefel): Notational Tendencies and Performance Processes
3. – 9. AUGUST, 11:00 – 18:00 UHR
Notational Tendencies and Performance Processes is a dramatic re-enactment of a lecture by American avantgarde composer Earle Brown. In this lecture, delivered at the Darmstadt International Summer Course for New Music in 1964, Brown spoke of the »cultural responsibility« of notational practices. In Young’s film, the camera circles the actor slowly over the course of an hour, momentarily revealing contrasting perspectives of the performance and the space in which it is realized.
