How can a musical score play an active role in the performance? What impact does it have on the way we experience sound, and how does sound in its turn influence our experience of space? These questions are the starting point for Light Trace, a collective dialogue between Catchpenny composers Yael Levy, Nikos Kokolakis and Sascha Thiele, guest composers Þráinn Hjálmarsson and Bergrún Snæbjörnsdóttir, visual artist Tivon Rice, and the musicians of the Catchpenny Ensemble.
Zizos is a new work by Meriç Artaç (Istanbul, 1990), artist-in-residence at Festival Dag in de Branding. She introduces a three-headed character named Zizos, inspired by the mythological figure of Cerberus. In this piece, Meriç creates a new language for the universe of Zizos, where each word or vowel is connected to a specific movement. Thus the score is written not only in music but also as a choreography.
