Live Stage: Step Across the Border [be Ghent]

n293968038273_9739.jpgStep Across the Border :: February 3, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. February 4, 2010 :: Villa Drashhoek, Warandestraat 58, Ghent, East Flanders, Belgium

In Step Across the Border two forms of artistic expression, improvised music and cinema direct, are interrelated. In both forms it is the moment that counts, the intuitive sense of what is happening in a space. Music and film come into existence out of an intense perception of the moment, not from the transformation of a preordained plan.

[image: by Peter Esmonde ]

He writes about the film, Trimpin: The Sound of Invention, an homage by the director Peter Esmonde to the creative genius, artist, inventor and musician Trimpin, and about Trimpin’s life and work: Among his works of art, I would like to remember Sheng High, i.e. an installation created in 2009 for the Ojai Music Festival, in which the author make use of a principle typical of the Chinese world of thousands of years ago. It is a sound sculpture that interacts with a natural element, in this case water, and whose main character is a sophisticated system of shaking bamboo woods. Another project titled Klompen, developed for The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art, is made of 96 Dutch clogs with a little hammer inside hanging in the air through a thread and which diffuses a rhythmical symphony controlled form a PC.
