CANCELLED _ _ Sonopol#17: NOORG, Arques/Metzger, Der Beauftragte
Eric Brochard + Loïc Guénin
The drone and the organum.
Resulting from the acoustic, electronic, rhythmic, and harmonic fusion of two musicological concepts, the approach consists in a subtle foray into the textures, layers, and ever-changing colours of a sound kneaded to the infinite.
Hovering between an experimental noise, with resolutely contemporary aesthetics and an electro-acoustic drone, NOORG's music refuses to adhere to a specific category. The two musicians sculpt sound like matter, weaving a complex web from a unique continuous strand. They work with the utmost precision on this single thread, refining the layers and moving the sources of sound in space to generate an acoustic, electronic, rhythmic and harmonic soundscape.

Eine audiovisuelle Performance mit theatralischen Elementen. Das Publikum erwartet eine metaphorische Auseinandersetzung mit der Beziehung zwischen Ego und Logos. Der Beauftragte ist gleichzeitig der Antragsteller und Prüfer. Er geht durch seine eigene Existenz mit sicheren Schritten ins Abstraktum, um dort in Folge einer Metamorphose seinen Frieden zu finden. Das Kollektiv begleitet ihn dabei:
Leonid Kharlamov, Kristin Kuldkepp, Felix Mayer, Detlef Schlagheck, Michael Steinhauser, Trinidad Martinez
