WHYNOT x DE RUIMTE

Friday 26 Oct 2018 Ditdit-dada-ditdit?
De Ruimte, Amsterdam Noord
More info and reservations

As you might know, WhyNot holds office at an awesome place called De Ruimte at De Verkeerstoren. Once in a while, we get to spice up their program with some movement! Next up: "New Path". A music and dance improvisation by Anastasia Kostner (dancer) en Jerke van den Braak (composer and software developer). It focuses on the use of algorithms in both rhythms/melodies and motion.

"New Path" is not only the title but it's also the name of the software used in the piece. "New Path" uses 4 colored dots (projected on a screen) walking around on a matrix of arrows. The colored dots follow the arrows but choose their own path on crossroads and teleports. This generates ever changing rhythms and melodies.
