Maak kennis met Moving Strings

: Bodying Sounds - Open rehearsal by Splendors ensemble-in-residence

Maya Felixbrodt of Splendors new ensemble-in-residence Moving Strings:
'We are very excited to be hosted in Splendor, to share with Splendor’s audience and musicians our research and creation.
In 2020 we performed in Splendor our first debut Changing Strings, including a piece by choreographer Manuela Tessi, with whom we collaborate closely. Our latest program Bodying Sounds was premiered in Perdu theater and will be performed in Gaudeamus festival in September. We invite Splendor members and musicians to our open rehearsal in Splendor.'

Moving Strings is a collective of 10 musicians exploring the relation and boundaries between movement, body, sound and space.
We are mainly stringed-instruments players, but also winds, percussion and voice.
Musicians with extensive experience in classical and contemporary music, and passion for improvisation and multi-stylistic exploration, from jazz to folk and pop.

We have many musical traditions to inspire from, yet we feel free of discipline, as we’re new passengers on an artistic adventure, to the land of movement.

With imagination, fantasy and a lot of listening, we search after an inclusive artistic language, one that contains just one word for ‘music’ and ‘movement’. An interdisciplinary music practice that invites the physical body to join the celebration of play and creation.

We bridge and connect different disciplines and practices: somatic movement practices like Body Mind Centering, Laban Bartenieff Movement System and Alexander technique, various meditation techniques, mime, meditation, theater, performance-art and text.

Moving Strings work together since 2018. We enjoy performing indoors and outdoors, shaping around every kind of space. We created outdoor site-specific pieces at the Vogelbuurt in Amsterdam Noord, and performed at Mixtural series, Zaal100 and 4bid Gallery, Amsterdam.

Moving Strings are:
Geerte de Koe - violin, Noortje Köhne, Alex Welch, Maya Felixbrodt - violas, Nina Hitz - cello, Jonathan Nagel - double bass, Camille Verhaak - clarinet, Irene Sorozábal Moreno - voice and recorders, Yung-Tuan Ku - percussion
Manuela Tessi - guest choreographer
