Unit Motives: GRM

Solo choreography on music by GRM composers

Vitruvian Thing, Ptolemaeon 29A, 4th fl., 54630, Thessaloniki

Die Wolke art group continues its work on the development and presentation of research and creative materials, and, for the third consecutive year, presents its Unit Motives initiative for the creation of solo works onmusical works by 20th century composers. This year, the event aims to explore the different kinetic and choreographic approaches to the interpretation of works by the Groupe de Recherches Musicales, with composers such as Pierre Schaeffer, Pierre Henry, Bernard Parmegiani, Iannis Xenakis, Luc Ferrari, and others.


Nine dancers from Greece, Italy, the USA, France, England, and Canada, will present a short solo of their own choreography, made through the exchange of information and video with Die Wolke, that explores the spirit and methodology of musique concrète and the theory and practice of electroacoustic music pioneers. The participants were selected through an open call.


The GRM was an electroacoustic music studio founded in 1951 by the musique concrète pioneer Pierre Schaeffer in Paris. Musique concrète is a form of experimental music that is based on acousmatic listening, that is, the consideration of sounds as separate from their producing sources, described by Schaeffer in his book Traité des objets musicaux.
