Mouvance I–III is the culmination of a three-year artistic research project at the University of Bergen under the auspices of the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme. The project, with the title Wheels within wheels, has explored late Medieval compositions and performance practices in search for new approaches to music making. The artistic results of the research are highly varied, ranging from improvisations and settings by the musicians in a late Medieval style to performance acts and sound installations inspired by Medieval musical material. The project has been led by Jostein Gundersen. The international team includes the composers Alwynne Pritchard and Ruben Sverre Gjertsen as well as the ensemble Currentes.
Mouvance II: Intonation
The composer Alwynne Pritchard’s Intonation is a kind of act of observance, an investigation of the relationship between the body, text, memory, touch, sight and sound. Reworking Medieval musical material, the performance also makes use of ideas inspired by mnemonic devices of the time.
