These two young men put their stamp on the twentieth-century history of music and dance with a bang sacré. What is the state of dance-music collaborations today? November Music organised an expert meeting on this subject, I was asked to moderate and make some introductory notes.
Transdisciplinarity is a new buzzword in collaborations between arts and sciences, or in art practices that resist categorisation. But what does it mean exactly, and what is the difference with multi -or interdisciplinarity? I will formulate some reflections on this subject during the seminar of Oortreders, a new small-scale festival for transdisciplinary art with sound. Be welcome!
