Marco Negri: The many ways in which I am a fish.

Adam Lippmann

Thursday April 29, 7pm – 8pm

Serial Space

In 2008, Marco Negri, intrigued by the behaviour of Russian tourists he observed while working at an island resort in Malta, travelled indirectly to Tomsk, taking up a teaching position there in philosophy, often remaining within its walls for fear of wild dogs fighting each other in the square to kill, which he would observe out of his office window. This intrigue along intangible lines through psychologies, landscapes, observances, and experiences culminated in his encounter with the music of Aleksandr Skryabin, which appeared to contain, explain, or be a product of dynamics he had intuited, observed, or experienced.

As per directions, this dialogue is littered with performances from the prelude cycles of Skryabin and presents the thought of Negri, particularly the celestial dynamic of “oscillation” and “The many ways in which I am fish”.

Performance: 30 minustes
