Machinefabriek – Attention, the Doors are Closing

Machinefabriek – Attention, the Doors are Closing


After making the music (with Aaron Martin) for his pieceHide And Seek, choreographer Iván Pérez asked me to score his workAttention: the Doors Are Closing!The piece was made for Ballet Moscow, as part of their collaboration with Korzo (The Hague), for the Rusland-Netherlands year 2013.

Before Ivan went to Russia to start working with the dancers, I made hours of raw material, mostly based on recordings of drums (which I found fitting with the concept of the piece). The last three weeks of the working process I joined Ivan in Moscow to work intensely on the music, while he was dealing with the finishing touches of the chreography. Each day the piece grew, and sound and movement got closer together.

Attentiondeals with human relations in all its aspects, and especially how these function in a Russian society. It’s a very physical performance that draws from agression, humilation and intimacy in equal parts. The score enhances this, making it a very intense and at times intimidating work.

The cd comes in a slim cd-single-style jewelcase and is mastered by Joe Panzner.
