Still interested in body and movement. Longing for more precision: gloves in combination with Kinect? It’s always a search for a balance between freedom and restriction. What is authentic? Pre-recorded samples?
Helping Richard Bolhuis with building up his performance in a church
Today I joined Richard’s team to help with his performance and see and learn from how he does things. I find his work and vision very inspiring, so I thought it could be valuable to see his ways of working.
Every year a performance by Richard is organised in a church in a small village called Oostum. It is a magical place, very beautiful, in the countryside, with a very small church.
I felt a lot of similarities in the atmosphere of his music: dreamy, atmospherical, easy-going. I really liked the style. It was beautiful. But also I felt a lot of similarities in the position Richard Bolhuis is in. He is a musician, but he floats in between the traditional art world an the traditional music world. And I also feel like that, which confuses me, my audience and my ‘feedback-givers’ sometimes. Would be nice to speak to him, and maybe get some advice about his artistic path…
