André Vida: Chiral Rapture; or, the Ambiguities

Online Lecture30 June 2020, 19:00

During this lockdown period, André Vida has been making what he calls 'remixes' by selecting songs from the various media of hip hop, experimental rock, trashy pop, grindcore, and then imposing his compositional visions onto these formats. This activity codifies a shift in mentality that has been ongoing in his mind for years, experiencing media apart from the original artistic intentions of the author and rather using it to elevate the 'me'––the consumer, the experiencer as the final arbiter of aesthetic decision making. The moods, attitudes, and structures of the material he chooses are enthralling, sometimes entrancing, but it never needs to seduce him. It all possesses something visceral and by reliving it in headphones and through his sax, he finds himself engaged in a similar frenzied state to the political ranters proliferating through the online ether. It is a glorious form of disembodiment that grooves itself deeper into this lockdown.

André Vida is a Hungarian-American saxophonist, composer, and lyricist living in Berlin. He has created performance pieces focused on the medium and materiality of scoring including explorations of interactivity, animation, lighting, and clothing design as elements of a compositional system drawing from and amplifying the physical gestures and energies of performance. André Vida has performed widely as a soloist and has also collaborated with a diverse group of artists including Tarek Atoui, Rashad Becker, Kevin Blechdom, Anthony Braxton, Hildur Gudnadottir, Jamie Lidell, and Hassan Khan. He has worked closely with Anri Sala on performances at the Serpentine Gallery in London, the Roman Amphitheatre in Arles (produced by the LUMA foundation), Frieze London and the Havanna Biennale. He has been commissioned by Hyper! at The Deichtorhallen in Hamburg, the Tri-Centric Foundation, Global Art Forum 7 and 10, the 8th Berlin Biennale, Eyebeam, and the European Sax Ensemble. A three-volume set of his work from 1995–2011 was released on PAN, his piece for 41 saxophones, Minor Differences, was released on Entr’acte, and he has been featured in The Wire, Tank, Monopol, and Electronic Beats.

The lecture will be held in English.
