(DA)(NE)S music cycle: Todd Harop
10.08.2012 20:00
This year’s edition of (DA)(NE)S festival focuses mainly on the artistic research by contemporary musicians, who are highly unconventional, notwithstanding that some of them have academic education – this year the stress lies on microtonal music and an alternative musical tuning on one side, and on less ordinary electronic artistic performances on the other.
Microtonal music highlights an aspect of music that is rarely exposed on Slovenian ground, since rhythm is usually the more comprehensive aspect in these parts. It focuses on a specific demonstration of music, which is created ‘in between individual piano keys’, i.e. microtonal music or music with alternative tuning. Sometimes this brings about literally new instrument creations, such that can serve better to the actualization of this musical principle. Selector of the microtonal music cycle program and the performances of various artists carried out throughout the year is Cameron Bobro.

Todd Harrop 10 Aug, 20:00
Sound artist Todd Harrop works comfortably in music and theatre. His compositions have been performed in Canada, the U.S.A., New Zealand, Italy and Germany, lately exploring a variety of alternative tunings, notably the Bohlen–Pierce scale. As a percussionist he has regularly played in contemporary or classical music festivals in Canada and Germany. Since moving to Montreal in 2008 he has immersed himself in its English, French and Yiddish theatre scenes.
Fascinated by the challenge and potential of interdisciplinary art, Harrop has collaborated with various artists to combine music with theatre, dance or radio. He has produced a popular musico-documentary for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation about the soundscape of modern farming. He has also created music for several choreographers either for dance on stage, film or even as part of an outdoor, promenade opera using an abandoned car found in the woods.
With the support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, he was artist-in-residence at the renowned Banff Centre for the Arts, Canada; and research at Concordia University in music-theatre–responsive media technology in Montreal.
