Making an Experimental Music Theater Piece in Berlin
gamut inc composers Maciej Sledziecki & Marion Wörle + librettist Leslie Dunton-Downer present their new music theater project >This is Not a Swan Song< in the context of Berlin's digital music and experimental performing arts scene. Their presentation features selected music and images from their work process, and will be followed with audience q+a and discussion.
gamut inc was founded in 2011 by Marion Wörle and Maciej Sledziecki to explore the interaction of electronic and instrumental music.
The interdisciplinary ensemble consists of a growing number of autonomous music robots, which are controlled from computer. Our focus lies in sonic textures - for that purpose we developed specialized software to control these machines live. Further on we use different forms of live-generated music scores to enable different degrees of composition and live improvisation between the machines, electronic sounds and "real" musicians, with whom we like to collaborate.
Our recent projects include for example the machine-music festival WIR SIND DIE ROBOTER in Berlin, the music-theatre piece ONE MORE PIONEER, about the relationship between human and technology, or the international festival AVANT AVANTGARDE, a travel in time to experimental music before the 20th century.
