Live Praxes
Live Praxes est une rencontre de performances qui comprend des ateliers, des séminaires et des soirées de performances. Un des buts de ces rencontres est de créer un espace pour discuter des pratiques textuelles performatives dans les sphères artistiques, curatoriales et pédagogiques. Les événements organisés se concentrent sur la notion de performance textuelle en tant que médium mais aussi en tant qu’appareil de recherche et à partir de là, s’ouvre sur un large éventail de supports et de formats, y compris les images en mouvement, le théâtre, les conférences, les installations, les publications, le son et la chorégraphie.

Live Praxes is a performance encounter that includes workshops, seminars and performance nights. It creates a space to discuss textual performative practices in artistic,
curatorial and pedagogical spheres. Live praxes focuses on the notion of text-based performance as not only a medium but also a research apparatus. It is committed to the concepts of ‘performativity and textuality’, with an extensive scope of mediums and formats including moving images, theatre, lectures, installations, publications, sound and choreography.

Alvin Curran, born 1938 in Providence (Rhode Island), is a Rome-based American composer and improviser, educated at Brown University and Yale University. After a year spent in Berlin with his teacher Elliott Carter, he settles in December 1964 in the Eternal City where he quickly bonds with other American expats and Ivy League composers - Frederic Rzewski and Richard Teitelbaum to name a few,- with whom he founds in 1966 the pioneering free improvisation collective Musica Elettronica Viva (MEV), in a revolutionary context. As early as 1971, he creates a poetic series of solo works for synthesizer, voice, taped sounds and found objects, and progressively develops large-scale projects outside the concert hall, in lakes, ports, parks, quarries, etc., whilst working on a regular basis on film and theater productions. In the 1980’s, various commissions from German radios allow him to further explore his idea of musical geography, through radiophonic works. Involved in numerous collaborative projects, he has been working extensively with choreographers (Trisha Brown, Simone Forti…), visual artists (Edith Schloss, Joan Jonas, Melissa Gould…), poets (Clark Coolidge), film directors (Memè Perlini, Susumi Hani, Beni Montresor, Antonioni…) avant-garde theater companies (The Living Theater, …), etc. An avid improviser, Alvin Curran continues at the same time to write pieces for acoustic instruments and electronics, radiophonic works and sound installations.

Maxime Guitton, a regular contributor of *Duuu radio, is currently a fellow at Villa Medici, the French Academy in Rome, where he’s leading a research on the composer. Together with Simon Ripoll-Hurier and Myriam Lefkowitz, they visited him in his studio, located a few hundred meters away from the Coliseum. They wanted to know more about his connexion with the radio, the importance of radiophonic works in his own production, how they relate with his activities of field recordist. They asked him to speak in detail about his methods through a specific piece named “Cartoline Romane”, a musique concrete piece commissioned, produced and first broadcast by Westdeutscher Rundfunk, Cologne in 1987. For about 90 minutes, Alvin Curran generously shares some of his fundamental concepts about music making through precise examples and more abstract ideas, which hopefully will help anyone understanding the scope of his work and some of its prominent features.
