O. Lab: Instant Musical Journalism
In-depth journalism and musical improvisations
Andrea Voets / Resonate Productions (NL)
Resonate Productions makes musical journalism: performances and podcasts that combine investigative journalism with lots of original music. Right now, Resonate Productions is developing instant musical journalism: a new, revolutionary technique of improvisation, in which three musicians support and enable meaningful conversations as they unfold. They do this with their music and in words, as musicking moderators.
In this very first public experiment, we’ll talk about what it means for any person to be taken seriously, to feel understood and to matter. The starting point is the intellectual undermining of women and the lack of interest in what they say, make or try to do in life.
Research question: How can three musicians carry and facilitate meaningful and risky conversations as they unfold, with improvised music?
