The Orpheus research cluster MusicExperiment21 increasingly developed a component of ‘staging compositions’, and the work of Romeo Castellucci has functioned as an important reference to the team.

He is the series editor of YMAGO, having edited and published books by Georges Didi-Huberman, Jacques Ranciere, Daniel Arrasse, Horst Bredekamp, Hans Belting, Viktor Stoichita, and Aby Warburg, a.o.. He follows the work of Romeo Castellucci since two decades and has given presentations on his work throughout Europe.
Orpheus Electric Salon returns with a flash-sequence of events in June – weekly sessions to show, learn, develop and play sound-work. Nicolas Collins hosts a series of guests addressing topics important to everyone working with sound. Calling musicians (electronic and steam), sound-artists, multi-media artists, performers, composers, hackers, instrument builders – these salons cover a range of ideas relevant to us all, whether established practitioner, curious musician or absolute beginner. Each week there will be hacking workshop, a chance to share your work, a hands-on introduction from expert artists to crucial elements of contemporary sound-work – and perhaps a chance to play together.
Thursdays 17.00 – 21.00 through June. Registration is free, but required.
