A Night of New Music and Film

 Sat 19 July 9pm!
 
A Night of New Music and Film from AMSTERDAM and NZ
 
featuring SYNC - Jan-Bas Bollen and Alison Isadora (Netherlands / NZ)
 
performing
TRACE
Alison Isadora and Jan-Bas Bollen (alias SYNC) have worked together on interdisciplinary performances since Hoofdwas, their popular show for computer controlled washing-machine and mezzo-soprano in 1995.

Their performance of The Deep South, relflecting on a residency in Dunedin, was premiered in the DPAG in 2001 before touring Europe. In 2003 they created Born and Bred which was premiered in De Balie in Amsterdam and dealt with the sense of belonging within a culture, a land or a family.

Currently SYNC is working on a new piece that will be premiered in the Netherlands in 2008 entitled TRACE -Studies in Audio Theatre.

In July 2008 SYNC travel through New Zealand with a combined performance/lecture format. A trip to the States is planned for later in the year.

Jan-Bas Bollen performs solo electric-bass throughout Europe and is also a member of Peter van Bergen’s seminal group LOOS and the new offshoot LEAMO. He is frequently commissioned by ensembles wanting to explore interactive electonics in the realms of audio and projected image.

Both Isadora and Bollen are active in tertiary education in the Netherlands. Jan-Bas Bollen teaches electronics and composition in Rotterdam Conservatorium, Enschede and Zwolle. Isadora gives classes in music to choreographers in Arnhem and runs a music-theatre project for theatre- makers and composers in Utrecht.

Many of Isadora’s recent works deal with cultural identity and the use of biographical material. She performs as both a soloist and in ad hoc combinations.

TRACE -Studies in Audio Theatre, is a 60 minute programme consisting of a number of works dealing with the consequences of loss and alienation.

The work considers on a poetic level the dynamics of trauma and tracks the role that time can play.

plus new films by reclusive Wellington film maker DENIS CLARE with a live soundtrack by DANIEL BEBAN, GERARD CREWDSON AND JEFF HENDERSON and a performance by outstanding new computer taskforce

the MICRO SOFT VOICES
