Sobre Twin Sets
Gémeos - nascidos do mesmo ovo, nutridos juntos no útero. Mas e os nossos "gémeos"? Eles são de diferentes idades, géneros, alimentados em diversas culturas, países separados. O desafio é encontrarem o seu gémeo musical, falarem com a sua própria voz mas descobrirem e encontrarem o espelho de si mesmos através do som que mais amam - o som de seu próprio instrumento nas mãos do outro.
No entanto, os gémeos não podem ficar para sempre ligados apenas à sua própria imagem no espelho. O seu desafio é também produzirem uma peça de música que responda à estética de seu par gémeos complementar em cada noite, e assim combinar a sua própria busca de um pelo outro com um encontro com os colegas do outro par de instrumentos. Cada set começará com as propostas de cada "par gémeo" e terminará com um conjunto que reúne os quatro músicos. O objectivo é produzir uma única peça musical, como se de uma forma sinfónica se tratasse, e cada secção funcionasse como um movimento dentro do todo.
About Twin Sets
Twins - born of the same egg, nurtured together in the womb. But what of our ‘twins’? They are of different ages, genders, nurtured in diverse cultures, separate countries. Their challenge is to find their musical twin, to speak with their own voice but to discover and meet the mirror of themselves through the sound they love most - the sound of their own instrument in the hands of another.
Yet twins can’t stay for ever linked only with their own mirror image. Their challenge is also to produce a piece of music that responds to the aesthetic of their fellow twin pairing, to merge their own search for each other with their reactions to the playing of their counterparts on other instruments. Each set will begin with statements from each ‘twin pair’ and conclude with a joint ensemble of all four players. The aim is to produce a seamless piece of music, as if in symphonic form, each section functioning as a movement within the whole.
Voice Twins: Maria Radich e Jean-Michel Van Schouwburg
Maria Radich (PT), voice
Maria Radich, in performance, seems possessed by multiple personalities clamouring for release from her slim body – Brazilian samba dancers, creepy little girls, Voodoo spirits all seem to vie for attention. None of this, however, prepares you for the moment when she opens her throat and unleashes the full force of her voice, a primal animal sound from another world. She trained in performance skills, subsequently concentrating on dance and choreography. She gradually began to explore the fertile intersections between dance, music and theatre. Music workshops with Nuno Rebelo, Carlos Zíngaro, José Menezes and Paulo Curado, were followed by singing classes with the teachers Cristina de Castro (2004) and Barbara do Canto Lagido (2006). At the same time she was attending vocal workshops with specialists such as Ute Wassermann , Inês Nogueira, Luís Castanheira, Margarida Mestre, and Sonia Gómez.
As a member of the Granular Association she featured in their concerts between 2004-2008. Since then, she has regularly participated, as a singer, in concerts of improvised music with different musicians, among them: José Bruno Parrinha, Paulo Curado, Ernesto Rodrigues, Paulo Chagas, Maria do Mar, Manuel Guimarães, Francisco Trindade, Bernardo Alvarez, Fernando Simões and Noel Taylor.
Jean-Michel Van Schouburg (BE), voice
Jean Michel Van Schouwburg (JMVS) performs vocal acrobatics over 3 octaves, using falsettos, harmonics, deep throat singing, yodels, fast articulation, mouth noises, invented languages and bodily expression. His lightning-fast shifts of direction result in spasms of facial contortions that provide a visual counterpoint to his singing, bringing humour and theatre. JMVS is the complete autodidact, working since 1996 to develop his technical vocabulary, and in the process working with many well known musicians, particularly in the UK, where he has performed or recorded with the likes of Paul Dunmall, John Russell, Adam Bohman, Lawrence Casserley, Philip Wachsmann, Mick Beck, Gianni Mimmo, Jean Demey, Marcello Magliocchi, Matthias Boss, singer Ute Wassermann and many others.
He was cast as himself in the cult horror movie, Berberian Sound Studio, directed by Peter Strickland (2012). Van Schouwburg has also conducted voice workshops in several European countries and, in addition to the UK, performed in cities across Germany, France, Hungary, Slovakia, Italy, Belgium, Holland and Switzerland. His extensive discography includes releases on Emanem, Creative Sources, FMR, Inaudible, Unsigned, Peripheral Conserve, Improvising Beings, and Setola di Maiale. JMVS also contributes ceaselessly to the improvised music scene, working with Inaudible association from 1984-2015 to organise concerts, writing in the magazine Improjazz and reviewing concerts and recordings in his blog, orynx-improvandsounds.
Voice Twins - factos:
Não há nenhum facto. De todos os “Twin duos”, talvez este seja o mais intrigante. É uma reunião para além da natureza do instrumento, envolvendo o teatro de duas fortes personalidades fortes, ambas com competências altamente desenvolvidas, lançadas uma contra a outra...
Twin Sets fact:
There is no fact. Of all the pairings, perhaps this one is the most intriguing. It is a meeting beyond the nature of the instrument, involving the theatre of two strong personas, both with highly developed skills, pitched against each other.
