A Global Performance with Electronic music, Guitar + Live video and object manipulations
Re - Routed: transforming rawness in a poetic act
Composer/musician Philippe Boix-Vives has been creating music for a number of performing arts forms for the past 20 years, including performance art, modern dance, theater and sound installations as well as several film scores. Aesthetically his music covers a wide range of sources and influences resulting in a dense music architecture. His guitar playing, freely improvised, is in strong contrast to his digitally organized and complex live electronic compositions. On this particular occasion, music elements from the album project "Re-Routing" (2001/2006) have been re-routed again, this time adapted for a concert context and the collaboration with Julia Boix-Vives.
The strong theatrical aspect of the artist’s music fusions naturally with his sister's universe
into a lyrical and poetical visual concert.
Julia Boix-Vives portrays herself in her videos and performances. She uses her body, movements and expressions as live raw material. Sometimes absorbed in a physical relationship with an object, she builds an almost sexual manipulation intuitively choreographed. She questions the origin of the movement by duplicating bodies and repeating gestures. In this project she addresses the issue of diving into the abyss. By revisiting and recycling her video material, reworking them live, she rebuilds her performances accompanied by her alter-ego dolls.
The concept and performance was developed in creative workshops in Eindhoven, The Netherlands in January and March 2010.
