MUSE ME


a series of consecutive dance/music performances – each one of the 7 songs of the collected work – Cabaret D



Sharing across continents, bridged by live broadcast of a performance created beyond boundaries, Muse Me is a model of cosmic spiritual connectedness and communal conciousness : asking how does one dance, and how is music generated, mused? ..

When dancing, a time forray into the future occurs. The dancer invariably dances to the future, hearing beyond time, what will come next. Will experiment with creating an energy flow beyond spatial boundaries, a collaboration to create, compose, perform and dance. A musical score of a prerecorded beat with fluidity will serve as a guide to a relationship of creating together without heirarchies, parallel and entertwined like dna - A memorial of life and birth.


Each performance is enacted through connecting a dance box , located each time in a new neighbourhood, in the public space, to an elsewhere located music setting through the internet, whilst audiences witness the performance in a third location. A 3m x 3m dance box will move through the city for new performance settings each month, starting with Mckibbin Street in Brooklyn, followed by other parts of the city ( Washington Square, Tompkinson Square, and Union Square are possible locations for the next performances )



The first of the MUSE ME series begins at 15pm on Saturday 25th July in Mckibbin Street, Bushwick , during a weekend block party / Art Fair, organized by the community of 700 artists living in Mckibben Lofts.

Mckibbin Street

Mckibbin Street is located in a predominatly Hispanic neighbourhood bordering between housing projects and Williamsburg Industrial Park, where a recent ‘creative gentrification’ of the neighbourhood is creating a tension between the artists and the local inhabitants.

An event which can promote understanding through sharing in the community is one of this weekends wishes. Audience are invited to participate and share food whilst viewing / hearing the performance as it is enacted / created real time.

Funding


Muse me is realized through the support of Anadolu Kultur : http://www.anadolukultur.org

PRIMUS EROTICA - A MIDSUMMER NIGHTS STORY

To be screened at The Gershwin Hotel with Neke Carson on June 23rd 2009

– Ode to Ishtar and Dionysus
a film by Suzette Gemzøe and Thomas Seest, Transcendens Dilettante, Copenhagen 2009


Primus Erotica is a celebration of the forces of love and sexuality represented by two major gods Ishtar and Dionysus. Before Christianity, there were temples and rites for these matters, but Christianity transformed the gods into witches with major consequences for our emotional life. Playing with fire is a natural ingredient in all spiritual rites and has always been considered a dangerous act.


Three feet, three candles


8 edged star

"We have seen the new Lars Von Trier film; Anti Christ, and felt a need to outlive a symbolic spiritual rite, free from Christian interpretation - we are not Christian, nor anti-Christian, we are dealing with matters that concern 5.000 years of human civilization".

Recipe (for two persons)

2 persona
2 apples
alcohol
sugar and cinnamon
primus cooker and white spirit
harmonica
fire
(add cigarettes and wine according to temperament and style)

Gently peel apples, preferably in one long peel, until naked. remove
the core and cut the apples in half, horizontally so that a star
appears on each half. expose the apples to heat and fire, until dark
and soft and consume them with alcohol.
thus ingesting an ancient love potion and redirecting your senses
with the drug of alcohol you will both synchronously enter the
ever persisting realm of sexual energy, mutual desire and quiet,
weightless ecstasy. here Ishtar rules alongside Dionysus, forever
nursing an eight pointed star of fire that will eat you up, possess your bodies, liberate your senses, purify your minds and enable unified transcending energy.

ULTRA GRØN PÅ WONDERLAND ART SPACE
"Dét edderbixme teltede..."


ULTRA GRØN ER:
--Morten Leck Plesner og Christian Elovara Dinesen--

"I 2005 boede vi på samme tid i Barcelona, begge for at arbejde med kunst. Som et sideprojekt opstod en ide om en overlevelsestur i bjergene nord for Barcelona. 5 hårde dage med dåsemad, tømmerflåds bygning, overnatning under åben himmel i klippesprækker, garn graffiti og alt for lidt vand m.m. Resultatet, sygdomsperioder for begge, den ene slemmere end den anden, men ikke desto mindre opstod et samarbejde og en fælles interesse om oplevelser og kunst i naturen..".

-Ultra Grøn er social interaktion, non profit, gør det selv
-Ultra Grøn udforsker, undersøger, bygger, maler, handler og tager ansvar
-Ultra Grøn skaber æstetiske værker i naturen, på gaden,
eller i udstillingsrummet
-Ultra Grøn arbejder for en gennemskuelig kunst som de fleste
kan forholde sig til
-Ultra Grøn giver lyst til skabe oplevelser og interaktion med dens miljø
-Ultra Grøn har desværre to onde tvillinger, som vi ikke tager ansvar for

TESLA 333



"We are whirling through endless space, with an inconceivable speed, all around us everything is spinning, everything is moving, everywhere there is energy. There must be some way of availing ourselves of this energy more directly. Then, with the light obtained from the medium, with the power derived from it, with every form of energy obtained without effort, from the store forever inexhaustible, humanity will advance with giant strides. The mere contemplation of these magnificent possibilities expands our minds, strengthens our hopes and fills our hearts with supreme delight."

- Nikola Tesla, 1891

Below from The Orion Project



We live on a planet that is consistently producing a magnetic field that can be tapped into to power our everyday needs as a virtual free energy source. Through interactions between the inner core of our Earth and that of our Sun, there exists an enormous and vastly untapped source of power.



Nikola Tesla was among the first inventors to successfully extract and make use of this source. By pulling out electrons from the earth and surrounding atmosphere and amplifying the energy using a specific design of coils, he was then able to transmit approximately 100 million volts over an initial distance of 26 miles and illuminating a bank of 200 light bulbs and ran an electric generator, all without the use of transmission lines. Later, he nearly perfected this technology only to have it seized by groups that wanted the device destroyed and the knowledge hidden.



(Bowie as Tesla)

An inventor have recently been identified who has studied and understands this concept. He wishes to remain anonymous at this time, but his background is excellent for this work. The goal is to produce a proof of principle device that is capable of fully powering homes, offices and buildings. Once a successful device is produced, the technology behind the power generation will be scalable to run smaller equipment such as computers and mobile phones, and larger items, such as vehicles and large machinery.

ISLAK KÖPEK (WET DOG)


Islak Köpek’s original lineup of Korhan Erel (computer, electronics, melodica), Şevket Akıncı (electric and acoustic guitars), Volkan Terzioğlu (tenor saxophone) and Volkan Ergen (percussion, computer processing) had their first performance in the summer of 2005. Following a series of performances at Galataperform and Jazz Cafe, Dirk Stromberg (electric guitar) and Robert Reigle (tenor saxophone) joined the band in January 2006. The six-piece band played regular gigs at Galataperform as well as other venues and also did some recordings, some of which released as their first album at the end of 2008.

Volkan Ergen left in the summer of 2006 to pursue other musical interests. The five-piece band played at Transit Improvisation Days with Le Quan Ninh and Kirstie Simpson, and Yanaël Plummet in June 2006, followed by a sold-out concert at the Akbank Jazz Festival in September 2006. Dirk Stromberg left the band because of teaching opportunities in Vietnam in 2007.

The remaining four members continued playing venues and making recordings, particularly with musicians such as Richard Nunns, Christian Asplund, Olivier Germain-Noureux throughout 2007 and 2008. They performed at the Body-Process festival A.M.B.E.R. and the second Transit Festival. The band also performed and continues to do so with guest improvisors from the flourishing Turkish scene, such as Umut Caglar (proprietor of the first Turkish free jazz/improv online label www.rekonstrukt.com), Florent Merlet, Alex Toisoul, Jose Blasco, and David Brosset, all members of the Turkey-based French improv band Have You Seen My Bird.

2008 saw the joining of Dilek Acay on violin, who has been a steady member until her departure for studies in Germany end of March 2009. Kevin Davis on cello is a permanent member as of February 2009.

Islak Köpek have been doing a show on free improvisation and free jazz on Açık Radyo since May 2006, where they interviewed musicians such as Christian Asplund, Richard Nunns, Chris Cutler, and Kevin Davis. The band members performed in different combinations, including other artists in Turkey, the Netherlands, Romania, France, Belgium, Poland, Austria and Germany.

Islak Köpek’s line up as of February 2009 is:

Robert Reigle: Tenor saxophone
Volkan Terzioglu: Tenor saxophone
Dilek Acay: Violin
Kevin Davis: Cello
Sevket Akinci: Electric guitar
Korhan Erel: Computer, electronics, melodica, cracklebox

Islak Köpek have released their first album in November 2008 on A.K. Müzik (www.akmuzik.com). The album features live and studio recordings of the six-piece band in 2006.



The Turkish name "Islak Köpek" means wet dog and was also part of the projects first installation in Istanbul 2007 during the 10th Istanbul Biennial and performed inside The Hall.
