Leila Bordreuil: an interview

Originally from Aix-en-Provence in the south of France, Leila Bordreuil moved to the USA to study at Bard College and now lives in Brooklyn. She will play twice at Third Edition on Friday 9th February — a duo with double bass player Zach Rowden and as part of a larger ensemble performing new works by Sean McCann.  Bordreuil will also give a talk about her work at KMH at 2pm earlier the same day. We met in NYC in January and switched on the recorder whilst talking about Eliane Radigue and Leila’s recent, fraught experience interviewing the legendary composer.

Terre Thaemlitz ▸ Deproduction (Svensk översättning)

“Det är bråttom. Vi får skippa förspelet. För några av er kommer det att innebära en spänd stämning av misstro, men försök ändå att ta in dessa två följande premisser.

För det första är det oetiskt att skaffa barn.

För det andra är demokrati en omöjlighet så länge det finns familjer.”

Film Screenings: Luke Fowler & Beatrice Gibson

The Third Edition Festival for Other Music will hold two day time screening sessions at Klarabiografen, Kulturhuset Stadsteatern with two British film-makers who’s work frequently turns to music for inspiration and as core subject matter.

Electric Pythagoras

On Friday we will host a double bill of films by Luke Fowler — his recent portrait of Canadian musician Martin Bartlett (‘Electro Pythagoras’ from 2017) and his earlier widely acclaimed film on Cornelius Cardew and the Scratch Orchestra — ‘Pilgrimage From Scattered Points’.

On Sunday morning we show four films by Beatrice Gibson — including Agatha (2012) — a psychosexual sci-fi about a planet without speech based on a dream had by the radical British composer Cornelius Cardew and three more recent films which all use the William Gaddis novel ‘JR’ as their point of departure whilst taking in Stockhausen, child capitalists and radical experiments in musical pedagogy.
