Workshop Presentation: Just Beyond Our Instruments Is The World

Workshop presentation Mocrep, Steven Kazuo Takasugi and participants of the Darmstadt Summer Course

In their »post-instrumental« workshop, composer Steven Kazuo Takasugi, the Chicago-based ensemble Mocrep and Summer Course participants are undertaking collaborative and performative explorations of the social, political, and aesthetic implications of instrumental musical performance, with an explicit emphasis on musical possibilities beyond the classical instrument. Focus is placed on utilizing found objects, makeshift instruments, »bro- ken« instruments, and even the complete omission of instruments (as in a movement-based, visual, or theatrical practice) to create radical musical performance situations.

Tickets: 5 € (box office only)
