It has been taken by chance not to dream in coloures some people say. Others don’t. I can’t remember ever dreamt in black and white but just in case i would – I wish to have this marvelous album as a soundtrack. (Matthias Tode)

After winning the best original score of: „OH BOY“ , Colaço & Schaeper continued to develop their collaborative project as a duo writing and scoring music. By the end of last year Colaço and Schaeper gather the classical musicians from the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and creates some intense and atmospheric soundscapes and  piano pieces. The album is out now: the 10th of May, 2019

For the dance film essay „The Body as Archive“Gregor Schwellenbach chose a simple yet radical approach: he created a kind of catalog of sounds, clearly structured, presented with sobriety and boldness. The sounds are not embedded in the familiar frame of rhythm-harmony-melody; rather, they are introduced smoothly, presented one after the other, sometimes going together, then standing alone. It is a sensual approach, at the same time executed strictly systematically. Or vice versa: Schwellenbach’s composition is strictly systematical, giving maximum space for sensuality and the unfolding of sounds.

Schwellenbach strives to create a system that doesn’t become rigid, by treating the material gently and with sincerity.

In composing „The Body as Archive“ he sets clear rules: everything is played by hand, he only uses instruments he plays himself: Keyboards (Rhodes, piano, synthesizer) and double bass. Almost all material is played in the same key, the chords can be used in any combination, everything fits to everything. The ten parts of „The Body as Archive“, mastered byTaylor Deupree, could be played all at the same time without sounding cacophonous.

Everything is pure presence, a gently woven stream of elegance and attentiveness. The organization of sounds – usually an action of preparation, didactic and discipline – turns into poetry.
