The Genetic Choir has performed in the last 5 months two times publicly, and one time informally...
My apologies that I have been not up to speed to announce these things on this blog. I am actually working on a new website: www.genetic-choir.org which will come online shortly, after the summer.
For the meantime and the sake of completeness, here the peformance dates and places: :-)
14 March 2010 Genetic Choir as guest of 'Blauw', in café Averechts, Utrecht
We performed a short piece inspired by the theme 'Ijle Klanken'. The composition will be published online on the new website...
7 May 2010 Genetic Choir performs live soundtrack in the Ketelhuis, Amsterdam.
We were asked to perform an hour of instant music, as accompaniment of the screening of 'Sound of Shadow'. See http://soundofshadow.com for more information on the filmproject.
27 June 2010 Informal concert at our rehearsal space in Amsterdam, to close the season.
A 25 minute piece by the choir and a 10 minute piece involving the audience. Both were recorded and the idea is that also these things will be published once the new website is up and running.
Thanks for this beautiful season and have a good summer!

The Meeting Point was an international platform for the practice of interdisciplinary instant composing, operating from Amsterdam, but in it's time also connected to artists in Helsinki, Berlin, Barcelona and Milan.
Improvised performance and instant composing seen as a disicpline in its own right, supporting interdisciplinary exchange, artistic production and social communication.
It all started with the Meeting Point sessions at the Bimhuis, Amsterdam, which are now continued under the name 'Monday Match'.
On this blog you can find the posts until August 2010, relating to the events that happened in Amsterdam and around (The Netherlands).

We hold weekly research sessions where the performance professionals from various disciplines lead the work in turns. Sessions are set up to (1) train and (2) discover and define work methods and vocabulary that work for any discipline.
