preview “many” music for the new performance of Cie. Willi Dorner

What remains of the body in the torrents of images in our digitalised world? Does everyone have to expose themselves on the Net to prove that they exist? Such topical questions dance through the new piece by Austrian choreographer Willi Dorner, renowned both for his pointed works in public space and for his clever play with the appeal and the pitfalls of the media world. In an ingenious live performance he causes virtual and material reality to collide and makes tangible the dissolutionary tendencies of our selves in the pixel deserts of digital images.


We do a sneak preview at Impuls tanz Festival. Willi Dorner invited me to compose and construct music for his newest dance piece called “many”. Its for two dancers, music and video animation and will have a strong gravitation towards ornaments, repetition, speeches and the loss of individuality.

My music will be played back from tape, so this is one of the few occasions where I will not play live.
