Special Thanks to Laura Cetilia, Mark Cetilia, and Shawn Greenlee

Setting #4 is what Marcel likes to call a “living installation”: an outdoor environment consisting of string players and speakers dispersed in a meadow. The musicians, rather than following the conventions of a music ensemble, act as individualist human sculptures. The work thus transgresses the boundaries of music, performance and installation art, as it blends the ephemeral character of sound and performance with the three-dimensionality and site-specificity of installation art. On the composition-level, this work is rule-based and generative. While the four musicians individually follow a set of probability tables to determine their played pitch, dynamics, rhythm and timbre; the electronics follows a similar set of rules and randomly generates over and over new pitches which are filtered out of white noise and spatialized on the meadow. The overall sonic result blends the digital and the acoustic qualities in an organic way, and reacts with the environmental soundscape of ocean, birds and distant traffic at Tillinghast Farm.

FACETS Residency, Bangalore/India

Marcel Zaes has been invited by Pro Helvetia India to participate as a mentor and collaborator for composition/sound in FACETS.

Final shows take place on Feb 4th and 5th, 2017 at Attakkalaria India Biennial, Gurunanak Bhavan Auditorium, Bangalore/India
with choreographers MEGHNA BHARDWAJ, YOUNGSUN KONG, SURABHI JAIN, TAHNUN AHMEDY, JORI KERREMANS, PARTH BHARDWAJ, SUJAY SAPLE

FACETS International Choreography Residency programme, organised by Attakkalari Centre for Movement Arts, Bengaluru will offer emerging choreographers, primarily from South Asia, an inter-disciplinary approach to develop new work and/or further develop their existing work. The participants will undergo a five-week long intense training while being mentored by adept and internationally acclaimed experts including choreographers, light designers, composers, theatre directors and digital artists. The residency will work as a collective with common technique/ skill sharing sessions, feedback forums, with production rehearsals to meet each choreographer's individual needs. This presents the scope for group devising during this period.

FACETS 2017 will be held from 2 January to 2 February 2017 in Bengaluru, India. During the Residency the choreographers will create/ develop original dance pieces be premiered at the Attakkalari India Biennial 2017 (3 to 12 February, 2017) that follows FACETS 2017. In addition to general public and dance enthusiasts, the attendees of the festival will include international delegates comprising of festival directors, presenters and the media.

Some selected works from the Residency might be considered for further development and/or for performances in other Indian cities.

SJÖ : TVÅ & Classicus Quartet

live in concert
Teatro Sociale - Bellinzona CH
Co-produced by RSI Rete Due
20:45, Bellinzona CH

Andrea Manzoni - piano/composition
Marcel Zaes - electronics/composition
Classicus Quartet Budapest:
József Rácz - violin
Réka Baksai - violin
Péter Tornyai - viola
Tamás Zétényi - cello

www.rsi.ch/jazz
www.sjo-music.com/sjotvaclassicus

In this program, Manzoni and Zaes completely rearranged their album 'sjö : två' and added a string quartet to their minimalist sonic world. The talented four players of the Budapest-based Classicus Quartet, live on stage, reenact some of Zaes' electronic sounds and reinforce Manzoni's harmonic approaches, both of which give this program a very unique note, blending the classical with the contemporary electronics.
