Kevin Skelton and Blaise Ubaldini in residence
Following their first residency at Flux Laboratory, Kevin Skelton and Blaise Ubaldini pursue their work developing a working structure within which they can improvise physically, vocally, and musically. This structure echoes Kevin Skelton’s current research on the principles of "Breathwork" developed by Ilse Middendorf.
For this second residency, they will go further with this work, integrating composition and electronics, exlporing the potential of a dance/music dialogue and thus challenge the historical/traditional process of choreographing dance on pre-existing music.
How could pre-existing movement influence musical composition? How could one compose not only for musical pitches and rhythms, but also for the rhythms and phrases of moving bodies? How could one choreograph not only dancers' bodies, but also the bodies of and sounds made by musicians?
