concert for two percussionists and a shaman
The perception of art or music is a complex process in which the subject (the viewer) and the object (the artwork or the music) complement each other to create an aesthetic experience.
All of this is subjective and based on random associations: the impression of the artist and his work and the perception of the viewer.
However, the successful exchange of energy is no coincidence.
This work is about the exchange of energy, based on inner voice and thoughts, between the performers and the audience. This exchange succeeds with the help and guidance of a shaman, whose work consists of energy purification and focusing (energy control).
Are you looking for a completely new approach to the relationship between artists and viewers that is common here?
I am researching in this field and for this project I am investigating rituals of different peoples, their meaning and the role of music. I use the impressions from this research for my artistic work.
RITUAL#1: Limpia is the result of my research in Mexico, where I studied different rituals of indigenous peoples. I met some shamans and healers in Mexico, had many conversations and learned from them about energy, the perception and the control of energy.
For this work I invited a shaman Carlos Pacheco to Hamburg to work with him on this work.
