Just returned from Geneva from the GVA Sessions 2011.

Led by Cristian Vogel and Marlon Barrios Solano, the participants – dancers, choreographers, musicians and composers worked on the issue  Dialog: Sound and Movement . The GVA Sessions 2011 offered a mixed format providing a collaborative space for different types and levels of knowledge, artists research and production. Over a seven-day period, we all worked in a self organizing  and collaborative format.

July 16th and 17th 2011 : Perspectives and Frames Symposium. A two day seminar over the weekend with an international guest group of choreographers, composers and interdisciplinary artists. They dissected and discussed with the participants their recent work and practices, exploring the practical and conceptual challenges involved in the composition of choreography, music and sound. See list of speakers on GVA Sessions website.

July 18-23 2011 The performers and choreographers had morning workshops led by Marlon Barrios Solano, based on somatic, release and contact work.

We split into groups and made 8 very powerful works between 18 participants on the final evening, 23 July 2011 open for the public. I was involved in a group that devised: "Sound Moves" with collaborators:
Ashley A. Friend (USA), Jeannette Ginslov (South Africa/Denmark), Jens Biedermann (Switzerland)
Thabiso Pule (South Africa) & Musician/Composer: Fernando de Miguel (Switzerland)
Shot on Ashley's Mac Airbook during the last rehearsal, 22 July 2011.

The group attempted to make a short collaboration using the notion of diegetic sound or concrete sounds made on the wooden floor with bodies during movement, sounds in the air, creaking floorboards. Fernando also captured the live sounds during rehearsal and then these were mixed live during the performance. I projected live camera feed using sometimes slower shutter speeds, still images, into the mirror in the studio. This created a multiple affect on the images. The moving camera and projector amplified the compositional structure based around the concrete and the digital, time and stillness, movement and image. I also captured the movement and sounds on my camera during rehearsal that will be edited into a Screendance work at a later date.
