    Kapsalon Theater | Choosing Freedom ft. Lisa Chudalla

    A protest concert against the double standards of anti-corona measurements, where full-contact jobs are allowed but presenting art in a responsible and safe way is not.

    Today I will join the protest @kapsalontheater , where over 50 Theaters in the Netherlands will open their doors for one day.

    It’s ridiculous that in the pandemic our government keeps prioritizing ‘essential jobs’ that require full contact over cultural jobs that can be done safely with distance and less traffic off people than the average shop… At the same time artists are not receiving any compensation or support.

    Today we protest against this double standard, while presenting art in a responsible way during another activity that _is_ allowed: a yoga class. There will not be more people than the class would’ve had under normal circumstances, demonstrating the flawed reasoning of these measurements.

    I will perform pieces from my latest album ‘Choosing Freedom’ while accompanying @lisachudalla with her Cyr Wheel and eating swords act.

    Here is the full statement from the organizer:
    .
    “Kapsalon Theater is an initiative of Sanne Wallis de Vries and Diederik Ebbinge. After two years of corona policy, we unfortunately have to draw the conclusion that the cultural sector, together with the catering industry and nightlife, is always the child of the bill.

    The cultural sector has always been flexible, careful and with empathy towards the Corona policy. Research has shown that hardly any infections were observed in the theaters during the opening. The lack of perspective and short-term communication is unworkable for the cultural sector. For the opening of theaters preparation is necessary and cannot be done immediately after a ‘weighing moment’.

    We place our hopes on our new minister Robbert Dijkgraaf and Gunay Uslu, State Secretary for Culture, to act energetically and to represent the interests of our sector in the right way. Give us a roadmap, in which the next step can be taken at verifiable moments, and offer us perspective.

    We are pleased with this one-off action to have found a way to draw attention to the situation in the cultural sector in a playful way and according to the applicable rules.”

    Smaakt Naar Muziek | Misophonia

    For this edition of Smaakt Naar Muziek Petrovic explores this form of suffering and reinterprets it musically, while serving homemade complementary breads and dips for the soup.

    Misophonia is a disorder in which certain sounds trigger emotional or physiological responses that some might perceive as unreasonable given the circumstance. Those who have misophonia might describe it as when a sound “drives you crazy.” Their reactions can range from anger and annoyance to panic and the need to flee.

    Choosing Freedom (release MFR094)

    Release on CD and streaming services, debut album of the instrument GEST.

    With this work Petrovic chooses to explore beyond abstraction, dwell within it, to find an inner celebration of what it means to let go of expectations and let music ring free. Free from arbitrary expectations, emotional manipulations and conservative evasions regarding what music “should” be.

    For this purpose he created his own musical instrument. The custom-built GEST allows the performer to design and play electronic music in an intuitive way, turning hand gestures and light sensors into an interface for musical expression. It’s an environment for both composing pieces based on audio recordings and performing structures with indeterminate elements.

     

  • September 10th, 2021 | 19:00 | Oude Kerk, Amsterdam

    Here is where we meet (finissage) | 6 questions, 200 letters and 28 poems

    Premiere of new music for finissage of exhibition by Aimée Zito Lema.

    Change: it is perhaps the only constant in the eventful history of the Oude Kerk and in society. How do we deal with change over time and what precedes it? These questions are central to the installation by artist Aimée Zito Lema in the Oude Kerk.

    For the past three years Zito Lema has been delving into the archives of the Oude Kerk. Interested in the reinterpretation of history and the value of heritage, two moments of resistance stood out to her. The Beeldenstorm (Iconoclastic Fury), which took place here on 23 August 1566 and in which people resisted the power of the Roman Catholic Church. And the recent resistance to the installation of a red window in the Holy Sepulchre, which some people believe affected monumental values.
    It is moments like this of resistance that are indicative of the change that follows. The installation in the church pauses at this point. You will see water basins with photos and building elements, you will hear poems being spoken and, wandering through the church, you will come across a number of sculptures in which photos on paper have been incorporated. In the High Choir you will find two extensive textile works. All these elements together reflect on the way in which resistance and change work for you as an individual and for society. What does resistance mean for the course of ‘our’ history? And how do we as a society initiate change?

    Recalcitrance (release MFR090)

    Release on double CD and streaming services with Matthijs Kouw.

    Philosopher of science Isabelle Stengers has studied the operations of states and their mobilization of technical practices to serve a presupposed general interest, which involves the production of rules and norms. Such rules and norms are blind to forms of knowledge that are denigrated as ‘local’ and ‘traditional’, and feature the correlative elimination of what does not conform and cannot be standardized – in other words, what is recalcitrant to objective evaluation. Anything that resists subsumption to technical rationality is seen as a threat to public order (Isabelle Stengers, In Catastrophic Times: Resisting the Coming Barbarism, pp.73-4).

    The eight tracks on ‘Recalcitrance’ examine abstract topics that range from metaphysical speculation and psychological investigation to reflections on the process of creation itself. Taking a shared set of source sounds as their starting point, Matthijs Kouw and Gagi Petrovic invite listeners to trace the common sources of their pieces and to become recalcitrant themselves by experiencing the compositions in ways that defy what Stengers describes as technical rationality. Recalcitrant subjects ask new questions, thereby allowing the currently dominant reductionist mindset obsessed with productivity to be unsettled by space for reflection and quiet contemplation.

On this night, he presents the first drafts and fragments of the collaboration.

    This electro-acoustic duo, consisting of cello, live electronics and two voices (mezzo soprano and bass-baritone), has an explorative and expressive attitude,. Fridman & Petrovic explore hybrid music making, in style and technology. They integrate musical elements from various practices, such as classical music, contemporary composition, songwriting, underground electronics and their shared background in Eastern-European music. The cello and their voices join the stage with the newly developed GEST, which shapes aural transformations through hand gestures.

    Fridman & Petrovic create new connections between old and new instruments to sing songs that you haven’t heard before. We hope you’ll join them in this journey.
