Q-02 has a particular position in the contemporary music scene. By means of it's conceptual basic assumptions, it has a blurring effect on the traditional boundaries of the concert practice. The repertoire of the 20th century keeps its importance in this matter, but the emphasis lays on the search for the new. Since 2006 Q-02 is acknowledged as a working place for experimental contemporary music and related arts. For Q-02 the heritage of John Cage and the Fluxus movement forms a solid base on which it grafts its artistic goals and aspirations. The range and artistic relevance of their insights reach only now their full potential and stretche well beyond the traditional concert-situation.
doundo/recycling G is a Q-02-project initiated by Julia Eckhardt (alt-violin) and Ludo Engels (recordings). Together, they built a sound-archive over a one-year period. All possible variegations in a "prepared" G-tone are being searched, found, played and put together. The under- over- and uppertones sometimes alienate into almost electronic sounds.
Q-02 went on to send them to a various selection of (audio)artists and asked them to process, adapt and arrange the recordings: Stefaan Quix / Sergio Merce / Lucio Capece / Jens Brand / Aernoudt Jacobs / Jim Denley / Stevie Wishart / Ludo Engels / Anne Wellmer / Els Van Riel / Manu Holterbach / Silvia Platzer.
In Netwerk, these different versions are presented together during the same event for the first time. The presentation aims to show the complete diversity of approach of this elaborated G-tone in a clear and accessible way to the public.
