Stellar, cosmic

Pulse Constellations takes as its starting point John McGuire’s 1978 electronic composition Pulse Music III. This complex musical piece combines rhythms, tempos and melodies in a series of 24 sections that are unexpectedly and abruptly woven together. The quality of the sounds, the fullness of the composition and its constantly confusing movement through the space lends the piece a stellar, cosmic air.

In this fascinating dance solo, Gabriel Schenker deconstructs and reconstructs McGuire’s musical web. He explores the boundary between the scientific and the organic, between the digital precision of electronic music and the analogue imprecision of dance, and between the danceable and the audible.

• Gabriel Schenker came from the US to Brussels eleven years ago to study at PARTS. He has danced for Rosas, Thomas Hauert and Eleanor Bauer, amongst others, and was joint founder of the dance collective Busy Rocks. Pulse Constellations is his first solo creation.

…a being racing into the future passes a being racing into the past, two footprints perpetually obliterating one another, toe to heel, heel to toe. – W. B. Yeats, A Vision
