What makes artistic collaboration work?
Artistic collaboration is primarily about the balance between offering creative input and accepting it. When a creative process is shared, where ideas are clearly and honestly expressed and when collaborators accept that their personal belief or perspective may not always be needed or relevant to the project. Therefore, excellent communication is critical and a shared understanding of why the collaboration is occurring in the first place.
What is important for you when curating a concert?
That the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Curation should be operating on a level beyond the music itself but remain in intelligent dialogue with it. Diversity in all its guises is also critical, especially in respect to the cultural context of the work.
Which sound is special for you?
One which I don’t understand.
