Chasmata

 

 

Chasmata is a 21st-century total artistic experience [Gesemtkunstwerk] designed by The DK <projection> in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA) to mark the 20th Anniversary of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in 2017. The project is a slow-cooked stew of various disciplines [astrogeology, architecture, instrumental music, sound art, electronic music, visual art, and sculpture] that revolves around saxophone culture and new technology. The idea is to create one plait by intertwining the strands of two great narrative threads, both inexhaustible sources of inspiration: astrogeology and the architecture of Frank Gehry.

 

 

The European Space Agency [ESA] is the artistic and scientific marrow that nourishes Chasmata. Through art, the project aims to connect the public with ESA, the European continent's gateway to outer space, against the singular backdrop of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao's 20th Anniversary celebration. The agency establishes a zone of cross-disciplinary cooperation, providing a group of artists with scientific material [theoretical frameworks, data, images, etc.] gleaned from recent studies about planet Mars, creating a space of reflection and planting the seed for a groundbreaking project in this field, blazing an unexplored trail across the territory between art and science.

DK <qumran>:

a pluridisciplinary voyage through space and light

 

DK <qumran> is an interdisciplinary audiovisual series of works that combines live visuals, architecture and music. The show consists in real-time generated visuals and electronic music [live and fixed media]. Music is reproduced through a set of speakers surrounding the audience in order to recreate the spatial feeling of the real spaces.

 

The documentary explores the pluridisciplinary relationships between music, architecture and visual arts, but also disciplines such as archaeology and enology, putting an special emphasis on history and old books collection.

Dismantling (itself) the time

 

Dismantling (itself) the time is a cohesive recital conformed by acoustic and electroacoustic pieces for clarinet solo. Centered on the new Spanish musical contemporary scene, the project becomes a sort of representative showcase of different creative proposals by young composers involving new media, as well as pieces by the most currently renowned composers.

Toranj

 

The music presented by The DK<projection> in Toranj endeavours to make converge contemporaneity and tradition, dealing masterfully with sound through new technologies. With a deep understanding of space and a ductile treatment of sound, the music by these young Iranian authors unites rationality and emotion at sensitive levels, which are difficult to reach by today´s Western composer.

The DK <projection>

Founded by the composer Ángel Arranz on one of the world references of historical electronic music and media creation, the Institute of Sonology of The Hague [NL], THE DK <projection> is a independent multi[inter]- disciplinary group whose creative stimulus is the use of technology as a vehicle of musical and artistic transformation.


Specially putting an emphasis on establishing scenic bridges between new avant-garde architecture and music, The DK <projection> explores, within an organic whole, many other media expressions, reinventing new genres that play a role in visual arts, applied technology and sound spatialization, such as algorithmic composition, fixed media, live electronics, live video performance, video installation, sound installation, photography, contemporary dance and documentary film.

 

 

Due to its versatility, The DK <projection> adapts to every scenic demands, which embrace different spaces, such as contemporary and electronic music festivals, film festivals, contemporary arts centers, cultural centers, medialabs, industrial spaces, experimental jazz, dance programs and theatrical events.
