Fleanòmia Musicircus

The platforms FLEA (USA) and Anòmia (Barcelona) -coordinated by artist in residence Arnau Sala Saez-, present Fleanòmia Musicircus, an activity divided in two days in which multi-channel pieces and live music from various national and international artists will be presented through the format proposed by John Cage in his piece Musicircus (1967); as well as talks and workshops given by Jack Callahan, Jeff Witscher and composer Clarence Barlow.

September 8th — Day 1

Lecture & Workshop. Jack Callahan & Jeff Witscher (Rene Hell) will present their lecture “Even When I Lose I Win”: A Pragmatic Approach to Communication in Time-Based Art, followed by a workshop using ideas presented previously. Non-musicians and non-artists are encouraged to participate.

September 9th — Day 2

Musicircus. John Cage’s famous 1967 event-piece Musicircus (“For any number of performers willing to perform in the same place at the same time”) will be reinterpreted specifically for Hangar. The space will be filled with speakers playing works from younger American artists (Lucy Lewis, Madalyn Merkey, Kieran Daly and many more), Barcelona-based artists (Rubén Patiño, Arnau Sala Saez, etc), rarely-heard multichannel recordings of historical works of electronic music (John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen), live instrumentalists, dancers, lecturers; plus live performances by visiting artists Jack Callahan & Jeff Witscher, computer music pioneer Clarence Barlow, Agnès Pe and EVOL.
