Moving Sounds Festival features Moving Images

FANFARE for MARCHING BAND, photo: Sanghoon Lee

At the Moving Sounds Festival this past Sunday, Anna Brady Nuse curated a screening program called “Spontaneous Disruptions,” a collection of four dance on camera works that moved between states of calm reflection and spontaneous demonstration.  Each one of these dance films brought viewers into another realm by rupturing our normal sense of reality.

The program included:

SPACES AND BONES by Derrick Belcham with Melanie Maar and Kenta Negai
A mysterious black-hooded dancer and a Japanese musician turn a gazebo in Central Park into a sacred space to practice their arts.

FANFARE for MARCHING BAND follows the antics of a ragtag musical militia (Mucca Pazza), as they embark on an inept invasion through a parallel universe where their exuberant music is out of sync and unheard.

THE NEXT STEP IS by Victoria Sendra
Stuck in the tunnel of time, the only place to escape is in the same time, because time is imaginary.

In which a man traverses an urban landscape via jump cuts only to have a strange encounter with himself.

Moving Sounds is an annual international festival of music, dance, improvised performances, visual media, and aesthetic dialogue produced by the Austrian Cultural Forum in New York. The Festival features emerging and pioneering artists who focus on electronically generated music, and who are at the interface between classically-instrumented and electronic music.

The fifth annual festival was curated by Michel Galante, the director of the Argento New Music Project, and Melanie Maar, a New York-based dancer and choreographer originally from Vienna.

Screendance: Inscribing the Ephemeral Image Book Now Available

Screendance: Inscribing the Ephemeral Image, is now available through Oxford University Press. Written by artist, scholar, and pioneer in screendance, Douglas Rosenberg, the book has been praised as “a must-read for practitioners and theorists alike” and “a window to the complexities of discourses in Screendance.” The practice of dance and the technologies of representation has excited artists since the advent of film.  Screendance weaves together theory from art and dance as well as appropriate historical reference material to propose a new theory of screendance, one that frames it within the discourse of post-modern art practice. Screendance is accompanied by a companion website featuring additional illustrations. Available now through Oxford University, or your local bookstore.
