Seducing the seducer – a conversational navaid to Bangsonics


A conversation a time ago planted the seed to re-enter that realm and that mode to share (some of its) resonances and transpositions with people interested in the work of Jan Bang.

Our conversation will plumb the depths of electronic sound qualities and its shaping in improvisational action, touch upon issues as how to dig into (and trust on) the potentials of one’s intuitions, how to stay in concordance with one’s sense of form and to be aware it is a game played with the other(s) who have to be invited and drawn in. Related the tension of letting music happen and steering it determinedly will pass in review. The nature of melody, the quality of ether and the indeterminacy of form might be a punkt as well as the differences between the process of creation and the semiotics of interpretation.
