Opening up your musical DNA: Diamanda Dramm and Genevieve Murphy

#music #cuttingedge #performanceart #violin #culturalexchange #Gaudeamus

What happens when you invite another artist to transform an existing performance of yours into something brand-new? Violinist Diamanda Dramm asked composer Genevieve Murphy to add new notes and perspectives to her performance 'Subverse'. This resulted in the piece 'Subverse Part 2' which will be performed at Gaudeamus Muziekweek 2020.
We visited Dramm and Murphy at the rehearsals and talked about opening up your musical DNA to let a co-author in and about the value of cultural exchange.

Dutch Performing Arts and Gaudeamus Muziekweek team up to present cutting-edge artists and ensembles from the Netherlands through a series of video portraits. The past two weeks we shared interviews with Fedor Teunisse of Slagwerk Den Haag and Zeno van den Broek, and Asko|Schönberg who talk about their inspiration and international ambitions.

Gaudeamus Muziekweek 2020 takes place from 9-13 September in Utrecht. This year's edition is like no other. Not only does the organisation celebrate its 75th anniversary. Also, because of the current COVID-19 measures, the professionals' programme that the festival had planned to organise for international presenters with Dutch Performing Arts fell through. Looking for alternative ways to present Netherlands-based artists and composers to international presenters, we've created a series of video portraits that spotlight some of the exciting Dutch work at this year's festival.
