EXCERPT OF "THIS IS A MUSICAL" (2015)
This is a musical presents a laboring body in the production of a visceral, discordant and deeply queer electronic fantasy. Karol Tyminski’s body is the instrument for the sample. The electronic music he wields comes into being through a brutal choreography. This musical is a layered archive of the body’s desire, which Tyminski together with musician Michal Laszkiewicz build towards a trance like space of madness and pleasure.
This is a musical was supported by Open Latitudes, Instytut Sztuk Performatywnych. Tanzfabrik Berlin,�and Center in Motion Choreographers Workspace.
Ensemble Medulla is a formation of vocal performers/composers, who are sharing since two years a weekly common practice. From a circle of five voices a collective sound body emerges: an analogue storage of familiar and strange vocal qualities, which creates a basis for the deepening of our artistic research. We are exploring the conditions and codes of high culture music making, as for example the formation of string quintet, as well as the conditions of traditional singing while working together, for example weaving. The common ground of our explorations are ever-changing textures of sound, a fascinating territory beyond the formalized musical vocabulary.
