Using transversal video as a tool for exploring transmodal remediation

During this spring clarinettist Robert Ek will explore embodied music cognition from two directions with composer Kent Olofsson and choreographer Lidia Wos in several labbs at IAC. Embodied music cognition describes how our body is a natural mediator of musical events, meaning that we simply communicate what we feel through our body.

Robert Ek has, as a clarinetist, specialised in contemporary music as a chamber musician and soloist. With great curiosity and dedication, he works together with composers to develop the repertoire for his instrument. He has recorded around 20 records and premiered a large number of works as soloist and chamber musician.

Kent Olofsson is a Swedish composer with an extensive artistic output of over 160 works that span a broad field of genres, ensemble types and contexts including music for orchestra, chamber music, electroacoustic music, music theatre, alternative rock music and works for dance performances and installations. His music has been performed by ensembles and orchestras like Ensemble Recherche, Symphonieorchesters des Bayerischen Rundfunks, Swedish Radio Choir,
KammarensembleN, Klangforum Wien, Oslo Sinfonietta and Avantii! and by conductors as Lothar Zagrosek, Gustavo Dudamel, Mario Venzago and Franck Ollu.

Lidia Wos is a Polish/Swedish freelancing dancer and choreographer, based in Malmö, Sweden. She was born in Pulawy, Poland, in 1970 and got her professional dance education at Public Ballet School in Warsaw between 1981 and 1990. After the graduation she has been working as a dancer at New Dance Theatre in Bytom, Opera Baltycka in Gdansk and Polish Dance Theatre in Poznan and from January 2002 until June 2015 at Skånes Dansteater in Malmö, Sweden. In 2003 Lidia made her debut as a choreographer when she made a short duet called Pas de Fly for a mixed Lunch Dance program at Skånes Dansteater. Her second choreography Ecru from 2005 was invited to an international choreography competition for young choreographers in Hannover. Totally she has created six choreographies for Skånes Dansteater’s Lunch Dance
