A follow-up to the regularly held Workshop Freie Musik at the Akademie der Künste up to 1998, INTERPLAY ! BERLIN extends the format to various genres of all arts with these common denominators: Improvised Music and Instant Composing.
International filmmakers, musicians, dancers, performance artists and
painters present their works on the Studio Stage (films/concerts/multimedia
performances), in the Studio Foyer (exhibitions/talks/film library), and
in workshops (club room/studio)
Five films shown are German premières: IRÈNE SCHWEIZER
by Gitta Gsell (Switzerland, 2005); FEMMES DU JAZZ/WOMEN IN JAZZ by Gilles
Corre(France, 2000); MY NAME IS ALBERT AYLER by Kasper Collin (Sweden,
2005); ESCALATOR OVER THE HILL by Steve Gebhardt (USA, 1970/2005) and
IMAGINE THE SOUND by Ron Mann (Canada, 1981).
Among the rarities these short films can be found: DAYBREAK EXPRESS by DA Pennebaker (USA, 1953), NEW YORK EYE AND EAR CONTROL by Michael Snow (USA, 1964), AMBITUS. CECIL TAYLOR À PARIS by Luc Ferrari and Gérard Patris (France, 1964)
Further films of critical acclaim are CECIL TAYLOR: ALL THE NOTES by
Christopher Felver (USA, 2004), the two-part documentary SMITH, JAMES
O. - ORGANIST USA by Klaus Wildenhahn (West Germany, 1965), as well as
KONZERT IM FREIEN/OPEN AIR CONCERT by Jürgen Böttcher/Strawalde
(Germany, 2001), featuring Günter 'Baby' Sommer and Dietmar Diesner.
A performance with Wolfgang Fuchs (cbcl, bcl, ssi, cl), Barre Phillips (b), and Peter Klinkenberg (sound effects) unfolds an imaginary film soundtrack (FILM MUSIQUE IMAGINAIRE).
Günter Christmann shows seven of his experimental films for live music and dancer. Moreover, he exhibits a small number of photographic sequences, and several original CD covers and boxes.
The performance of the Dutch duo PDQ^D, Petra Dolleman (live images) and Peter J.A. van Bergen (live music), represents also a première.
Founded in 1990 by Helge Leiberg, Lothar Fiedler, Dietmar Diesner, and dancer Noriko Wada, who also coined this performance group's name GOKAN (Japanese for 'the senses') now show their improvisational 'Gesamtkunstwerk' including painting, music, and dance ín cooperation with dancer Fine Kwiatkowski.
The New York group around trumpeter and flutist Roy Campbell, dancer Maria Mitchell, bassist Peter Giron and drummer John Betsch includes painting as well - their performance is documented by New York 'jazz action painter' musicWitness® Jeff Schlanger, who creates drawings of avant-garde jazz musicians in performance since thirty years.
Gunter Hampel´s Music & Dance Company opens the series of concerts and performances on June 2nd, which is also Irène Schweizer´s birthday who, on that occasion, will do a solo-concert on June 3rd. Happy birthday, Irène!
