'Grace Note' is an interdisciplinary project, which was developed as a co-production with Tanzquartier Wien and Wien Modern, as well as in collaboration with ICST Zürich and Liquid Loft. Performance and installation as well as acoustics and electronics form a dynamic structure by means of interaction between sound and movement. Composer Arturo Fuentes sees the human body expressed through dance and theatre as becoming a sonic map on which different rhythms and tempos trace out their paths. Based loosely on the ideas of Günter Brus's, he defines the visual and scenic context of his works as “deaf-music”, “unaccented silence”, “dark-room-music” or “eye-music”.
