Can we transfer creative strategies from other artistic domains into music creation? Can a sequence of sounds be composed the way a choreographer composes a sequence of movements in space, a poet composes an arrangement of words, a novelist follows characters through a plot? Can music be staged the same way a director stages a play or a visual artist conceives an installation? The "Ecstasies of Influence" research-creation project will explore inter-artistic ways of conceiving, creating and composing musical performances and productions, influenced by dialogues with and transfers from other artistic practices. Involved artists in Montréal are David Szanto (conceptual/gastronomic arts), Deborah Carruthers (conceptual, ecology, multidisciplinary arts) and Angelique Willkie (body, dramaturgy).
