IBP 1 – Yogyakarta, Indonesia. 2013

EVENTS

(im)possible concert and possible discussion.
3pm-6pm, Saturday 13th July

A concert of experimental music with a series of short performances using new instruments invented by The Instrument Builders Project (IBP) at iCAN. The IBP is an attempt to create new sounds and new ways of playing and in turn tackle the question; can we go successfully generate new ‘forms’ of music?

Konser musik eksperimental melalui serangkaian pertunjukan singkat, memanfaatkan alat-alat musik baru yang diciptakan dalam ‘The  Instrument Builders Project (IBP) di iCAN. IBP merupakan suatu upaya mencipta bebunyian dan cara-cara baru memainkan alat musik dan  menjawab tantangan: bisakah kita menghasilkan ‘bentuk’ musik yang baru?

Performing installation
 3pm-6pm, Sunday 14th July

“ Apparatus - The way in which the parts of a machine or of a mechanism and, by extension, the mechanism itself, are arranged.”  – definition from Giorgio Agamben’s ‘What is an apparatus?’

A ‘performing installation’ event for an audience who navigate through an uncanny environment populated by invented ‘instruments’ that all connect, as in the cogs of a giant mysterious machine. But what does this machine produce?

“Suatu cara di mana bagian-bagian dari suatu mesin atau mekanisme dan, dalam segi tertentu, mekanisme itu sendiri, ditata” – definisi diambil dari Giorgio Agamben ‘What is an apparatus?’

Acara untuk penonton terbatas, menjelajahi sebuah lingkungan aneh yang dipenuhi alat-alat musik baru yang saling terhubung, seperti di dalam roda penggerak mesin misterius raksasa. Tetapi apa yang dihasilkan mesin ini?
