A concert/installation by Eric Wubbels
In interbeing, the five musicians of TAK enact a slow-moving, ritualized progression through a series of 'formations' which visually, acoustically, and theatrically manifest concrete images of connectedness and mutual interdependence.
The music-making is communal and without hierarchy.
Musical structures arise through the overlapping and interference between individual contributions.
The sound field is in a constant flux.
We leave behind the limitations of our separate identities, fusing into one social and sonic unit.
interbeing is 40-minutes long and seeks to build an art of community, interpersonal relation, and forward motion.
