Video Excerpt of "Williams Mix Extended" - a new interpretation of John Cage's Williams Mix by Werner Dafeldecker and Valerio Tricoli, originally scored for magnetic tape in 1952. Approaching the original score from a contemporary perspective, this new interpretation of Williams Mix contains a close analysis of the relationship between early tape music and current digital production, including video, allowing for original parameters of the score to be realized within the context of recent audio-visual technological practices and live instrumental performance. The video component of Williams Mix Extended, created by (nationality) artist Lillevan, will focus on the permutation and transformation of Cage´s tape notation into visual art.

This is a concert I have been looking forward to for some time. The great Werner Dafeldecker from Austria on bass together with american Jaime Fennelly on Shruti Box. Berlin based Clare Cooper from Australia joined the 2 spontaneously on her harp (she is also not in this video excerpt because I was a bit too close to the stage - sorry Clare). The set started out with a very nice drone and for me that would have been enough but unfortunately they started some sort of improvisation half way into the set which was also good but not as good as the drone. Filmed in september at the Electronic Church, Berlin.+ More details
