Jonathan Burrows & Matteo Fargion
SEVEN DUETS (2013) - fragments, movements and insights
from the interplay between Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion
Choreographer Jonathan Burrows and composer Matteo Fargion
bring their body of work to Motion Bank.
Their score project will investigate the element of counterpoint across several of the duets they have made together to include Both Sitting Duet (2002), The Quiet Dance (2005), Speaking Dance (2006), Cheap Lecture (2009) and The Cow Piece (2009). Nik Haffner, choreographer, dancer and educator from Berlin joins the team as research collaborator.

A Sneak Peak at their score content: "The duets of Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion were recorded as many selected fragments. In the online score this collection has been expanded with our own 'performers' and 'generators' that have been built from information about the duet creation process of Burrows and Fargion. Along with these ever ongoing performance recordings from all their duets, insights into their score notebooks and interviews with them are available." Florian Jenett & Amin Weber

Motion Bank Phase Two is evolving in stages. Currently we are improving our on-line annotation and publishing systems (MoSys) for eventual public release to join PM2GO. We are building a network of choreographers, dancers and researchers interested in using MoSys for their own purposes or adding resources to Motion Bank. We are organising Choreographic Coding Labs in collaboration with new partners worldwide. These Labs bring together creative coders interested in translating choreography and dance into new digital forms. In addition, we are supporting the continued research of the International Education Workgroup. Sign up for the newsletter to be kept informed.
