Musik (Praticable) is a search for the motivations and origins of moving, dancing, being there in present time and how this can relate to music, sounding, vocalizing, breathing, being there again... A space between texture and form, seeing and hearing, perception and state, vibration and composition, forgetting and discovering, pleasure of dance and pleasure of music.
Comparing musical terminology and concepts with physiology, choreographic writing and compositional elements in dance, Musik (Praticable) looks into the relationships between visual and auditory rhythms, between musical terms and organizations of bodies writing themselves in space like motifs, figures, polyphonic voices or body - landscapes.
’Rhythm appears as music when it invests the auditory level, and as painting when it invests the visual level.’ (Francis Bacon by Gilles Deleuze)
