Improvised Electronic music for ‘Take Off – a night of whirling and minimal improvisation’.
Recorded live April 18th at Mime Centrum, Bethanien, Berlin.
I improvised this set supporting dancers spinning around their axis for hours, inspired by the whirling tradition of sufi dervishes. The set was preceded by a session of minimal improvisation, collective spontaneous construction of repetitive patterns.
The music obviously relys heavily on repetition and was preceded by a lengthy session of collective minimal improvisation.
Next to electronics the music features my voice, using falsetto, bits of kargyraa throat singing and overtone singing.
A big thanks to the fellow musicians taking part in this and to all the whirlers, I love to play for these spining bodies.
