Unfortunately, one of the artists contracted then corona virus. We are therefore forced to postpone this event to a later date.
T R O M P O
T R O M P O is a new music ensemble dedicated to the performance of the music of now. T R O M P O is composed by Carlos Anez (Flute), Marthe Lasthuis (Violin), and Laura Nygren (Double Bass). The three met while studying and living in the Netherlands and bonded over a love of playing together, making strange and beautiful sounds, and stretching the limits of their instruments. As the orchestration of the group is not common, T R O M P O have been commissioning composers from all around the world to develop their repertoire. Recently this year, they premiered pieces from composers from the USA, Colombia and The Netherlands.
At ALT_SPACE, T R O M P O will explore the sonic meditations of Pauline Oliveros, as well as their own making. The ensemble invites their online and live audience to partake in the meditations by interacting with Touchy, or by participating in person. The two audiences will need to unite and become their own instrument, playing together while they are not in the same location and have no way of communicating. T R O M P O will facilitate communication through music, regardless of the geographic limitation.
ALT_SPACE is an interactive hybrid platform fostering an exploratory environment in which audiences can actively contribute to the live-streamed performances in real-time, within the framework set by each artist. To enable such interaction, ALT_SPACE features Touchy, a web application with an intuitive interface, accessible on any device. Conceived as a ‘set and forget’ touch interface, Touchy adds another dimension to the user’s experience.
ALT_SPACE takes advantage of the possibilities offered exclusively by the online realm, promoting effective audience engagement through the collective development of an art performance in real-time. The platform embraces a creative approach to streaming: in ALT_SPACE, the simulacra take over – surveillance and image distortion become part of the reality of the streamed medium.
A COVID-19 entry certificate is mandatory.
