What is the relation between Folk Music and Classical Western Music? How does classical composers get feedback from folk music? How do they use that feedback in their composition?
The aim of the project is to explore multidimentional, amorphous and vague expressions arising when many aspects of the music are given more independent roles than in traditional musical writing styles. What interests me is to manoeuver within a continuum of means, where the historical sounds of the instruments are there as just one extreme within a continuum.
Since summer 2013, a slowly growing team of researchers in Zurich and Europe is steadily develoing the local and transversal framework of Immediations. In Zurich, concerns of immediation are focused on the term “Urban Fabric.” The attempt is to interlace expertise in textile and architecture, urban interaction design, and artistic research enabling us to outline, develop and concretize new practices of research and knowledge production through conceptual work aesthetic experiments. The preliminary goal is laying the ground for the second project phase The Anarchive which will primarily be staged in Europe.
