PRoGRaMMa Bekijk het volledige programma Monica Germino & Floriaan Ganzevoort za. 20 juli 2019 20:30 - 21:15, Ongehoord MUTED Monica Germino - vioolFloriaan Ganzevoort - licht, mise-en-espace Na de diagnose hyperacusis (extreme gevoeligheid voor geluid) moest Monica haar gebruikelijke optredens staken. Het Amerikaanse componistencollectief Bang on a Can en Louis Andriessen sloegen de handen ineen om een stuk te maken dat haar in staat stelt de grenzen van het hoorbare te verkennen. Het resultaat: MUTED. De enorme verzameling dempers (‘mutes’) van violiste Monica Germino was het uitgangspunt. Zij bespeelt naast haar eigen Ceruti-viool ook een zeldzame ‘frame-viool’ (zonder klankkast) én een speciaal voor dit project ontworpen ‘fluisterviool’. In coproductie met: De Doelen, Music on Main, Vancouver, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival en Festival Oranjewoud --- i was once a vers libre bard but i died and my soul went into the body of a cockroach it has given me a new outlook upon life i see things from the under side now there is a cat here called mehitabel boss i have discovered that mehitabel’s soul formerly inhabited a human also at least that is what mehitabel is claiming these days who were you mehitabel I asked her i was cleopatra once she said well i said i suppose you lived in a palace you bet she said and what lovely fish dinners we used to have and she licked her chops this is the song of mehitabel of mehitabel the alley cat as i wrote you before boss mehitabel is a believer in the pythagorean theory of the transmigration of the soul and she claims that formerly her spirit was incarnated in the body of cleopatra i have my ups and downs but wotthehell wotthehell yesterday sceptres and crowns fried oysters and velvet gowns i wake the world from sleep as i caper and sing and leap when i sing my wild free tune wotthehell wotthehell cage me and i’d go frantic my life is so romantic capricious and corybantic and i’m toujours i’m toujours gai toujours gai oh i should worry and fret death and i will coquette there is a dance in the old dame yet toujours gai toujours gai I once was an innocent kit but a maltese cat came by with a come hither look in his eye and a song that soared to the sky and i followed adown the street the pad of his rhythmical feet wotthehell my youth i shall never forget but there is nothing i regret Moth i was talking to a moth the other evening he was trying to break into an electric light bulb and fry himself in the wires why do you fellows pull this stunt i asked him because it is the conventional thing for moths or why if that had been an uncovered candle instead of an electric light bulb you would now be a small unsightly cinder have you no sense plenty of it he answered but at times we get tired of using it we get bored with the routine and crave beauty and excitement fire is beautiful and we know that if we get too close it will kill us but what does that matter it is better to be happy for a moment and be burned up with beauty than to live a long time and be bored all the while so we wad all our life up into one little roll and then we shoot the roll that is what life is for it is better to be a part of beauty for one instant and then cease to exist than to exist forever and never be a part of beauty our attitude toward life is come easy go easy we are like human beings used to be before they became too civilized to enjoy themselves and before i could argue him out of his philosophy he went and immolated himself on a patent cigar lighter i do not agree with him myself i would rather have half the happiness and twice the longevity but at the same time i wish there was something i wanted as badly as he wanted to fry himself Deel deze pagina: Dit vind je misschien ook leuk Het Dorp donderdag Muziekinstrumenten knutselenWeeshuis van de hits zaterdag jongNBEHet Veld donderdag Western Balkans SextetHet Weiland vrijdag Razen Zodra het programma voor 2024 rond is, komt het hier te staan!
