Between Music creates and produces unique art projects and innovative performance concerts in a hybrid of music, live performance, visual arts, architecture and new technology. The group masters a vast range of aesthetics, skills and genres, but finds the most potential in the ever-fluctuating spaces between them.
Under the heading ARS HUMANA, our work and artistic research revolves around four aspects of Human Nature: Being, Instinct, Emotion, and Intellect. This theme-based research derives from a deep desire to uncover what we have in common as human beings – regardless of religious, cultural and societal differences. Embedded in each of us lies a deep knowledge and experience with the world that transcends boundaries and goes beyond words. ARS HUMANA is our artistic framework for unlocking this intuitive, emotional, and corporeal knowledge.
The key is to strive for the extra-ordinary. When we experience something out of the ordinary – something unusual or unexpected – our minds do not immediately decipher or categorize it. In that very moment lies a perfect opportunity to experience, sense and perceive the world anew. It is an opening and an invitation to pose questions that allow for ambiguities and intuitive discoveries.
Art is our tool, our method and our means of expression. But our creative work also involves interdisciplinary collaboration with scientists, artists and craftsmen compelled by the same passion and urge to explore, create and seek opportunities that take us beyond what we think we know. The international collaboration with experts each within their field inspires and ensures the high quality and integrity that characterizes Between Music’s artistic work.
Project proposal “Liquid Breathing”
How can we co-create a sustainable and scalable water festival? We wish to co-design a touring water festival where water as a theme is researched from both a scientific, more rational perspective to an artistic, more poetic point of view. The aim is that we can be able to create a number of local water festivals throughout Europe where we tour with our water based art and performances in a sustainable way and the local actors participate and engage with the local area hence creating a scalable concept – a row of unique but still coherent water festivals.
The water festivals should be created in a triple helix partnership between local artists, researchers, local water industries and – organisations and citizens.
The water festivals is inspired by UN’s SDGs where water plays a fundamental part and where the realization craves collaboration between different fields of professions and sectors. We wish to create an event concept where art together with other disciplines articulates, finds new perspectives and solutions.
The events gathers researchers, artists and communicators, a collective projects where the starting point is water and the fascination which through out time has drawn humanity towards water. Water is life and water is beauty – and at the same time water can be brutal and devastating – whether you regard water from a poetic point of view or a more scientific point of view there is a wealth of ideas and knowledge to be shared.
Art and science is both creative processes and we have a lot to learn from each other. We want to share the common fascination with a broad audience throughout Europe.
”They both listened silently to the water, which to them was not just water, but the voice of life, the voice of Being, the voice of perpetual Becoming.”
