Participants of the Percussion Studio of Christian Dierstein and Håkon Stene

The ability to structure time through rhythm has been connected with the body and movement from time immemorial. The participants of Christian Dierstein and Håkon Stene’s percussion studio extend this setting in a special way in their selection of pieces: with the aid of small finger tools, they explore the potential of movement patterns (Løffler), bind themselves together with a ribbed plastic pipe to form a tutti (Bång), display Hermeto Pascoal’s Body Percussion in new instrumentation (Tjøgersen) and choreo- graph the “most beautiful collection of instruments in the world” (Poppe). This concert features compositions which largely dispense with customary percussion instruments, instead placing movement, performance and the percussive utilization of objects in the foreground.

“End. Freeze.
Release, get ready for next movement as quickly and smoothly as possible.” (Jennifer Walshe)
