About research in dance, by Laurence Louppe

Last week, the editorial house Contredanse included an amazing short piece of thought by Laurence Louppe in their Chronique #5. The text is in French and I could not resist to translate it and share it with all of you. Thanks to Laurence Louppe for her amazing power to say things in such an accurate way. Here it is:

“In fact, the choreographer would be the first researcher: getting out of the preexistent models, working on displacing the processes, giving oneself and others instructions that open to the unknown, to analysis, to the visit of operations and dispositions (like the Tuning Score of Lisa Nelson), trying new scores, exploring ways of improvising, observing what occurs and giving new frameworks to experience, isn’t this the very definition of a scientific act? Yet it is the very definition of a poetic act. Research in dance is first a research in art.”

Laurence Louppe

Extrait from the paper Notes pour une recherche en danse in Nouvelles de Danse no 26, 2003.

Learn to compose for dance!

Learn to compose for dance!

Hello!

I am excited to share a new video series showing you how to make and teach sound design for dance. I walk you through how to compose a three minute piece. The tools needed are a computer, a mobile phone, Ableton Live Intro and all the creativity you can muster. I have designed the series to start from the very beginning, so no prior experience with music or Ableton Live required. (Ableton Live Intro is less than a textbook...which gives students a tool to use for life!)

This is an amazing resource for dance educators that would like to bring deeper musical practices into a choreography/creative process course. It is also designed for the choreographer interested in making music for their own pieces. You will be blown away to hear what you and/or your students make. I have had wonderful experiences teaching music to dancers and musicians this way. I am so happy to be sharing these concepts with everyone now!

"Learning Sound Design" is available now for all membership levels at no additional cost. There are eight videos totaling 4-5 hours of content. I plan on making many more of these in the coming months. If you would like to supplement your classes with more music for dance, memberships start at $5.

Have fun!
