Course on music and sound in relation to dance making (Stockholm)


More independent courses on dance in DOCH:

From Beyoncé to Bach

This course explores music and sound in relation to dance making and choreography from historical, political, economical and aesthetic perspectives. The course is done in collaboration with Weld.

The course aims to deepen the understanding of the fields and its different genres by critically reflecting the independent art forms and how they work in parallel, interact, reinforce and support each other.

Choreographers and dancers make their own music, collaborate with composers and musicians, and use licensed music or samples music from open source distributers. Through expanded choreography you become your own musician. Music has always had a strong relation to dance, in different ways in different times.

Where are the critical perspectives on the use of music today? Often, common recognizable music is used as a democratic tool in performance. What does these choices mean in relation to the music industry and its commercial values?
