Anthony Howell and Lindi De Angelis perform Negative Time: Three Movements to Classical Music
1 Eric Satie – Tres Gymnopedias No. 1, Cécile Ousset/2 Claude Debussy – D’un cahier d’esquisses, Jean-Efflam Bavouzet/3 Alexander Scriabin – Prelude Op. 16, no 1, Vladimir Horowitz
Then a tango to a Jazz Impression – Duke Ellington orchestra – Isfahan
Like ‘negative space’, negative time suggests that form is created by what is missed out. Each dance in this series misses out some usually included ingredient in the art of tango – that is the art of leading and following in time. The ingredients jettisoned are connection, contact, and thirdly development. Finally all the ingredients come together in a fourth dance to the jazz impressionism of Duke Ellington.
