Something Else for Now

Dance: Jordan Marinov

"Casual and easy going—what else could describe Something Else For Now?? In this tasty morsel, we get a good sample of Reconsiderate's signature multi-layered binary/drone mixing style.

60x60 Dance @ the Winter Garden, NYC (11/14/08) [Funf/Guillermo]

Music: Chris Barrett - Funf
Dance: Eun Jung and Guillermo - Da·Da·Dance Project

"Fünf are five multi-instrumentalists who, while regular performers with live bands, are proponents of using the recording studio as an instrument. As a result, Fünf compositions evolve as if they were live band pieces, dynamic and musical, taking many unexpected detours. Each piece begins as a “seed track” created by one member. It is then emailed to the next member. The next member adds new elements – acoustic/electronic instruments, samples – and sends it to the next member. A duet repertory company, Da•Da•Dance Project challenges conventional notions of art making with travesty, absurdity, and physical authenticity. We continuously seek to find a language that speaks, communicates and delivers uniquely expressive vocabulary, to reveal our eccentricity."
