Music for Imagined Dances

A dance piece created through the act of listening.
A sound exhibition for possible dance.
An infinite encounter in a small room.

Music for Imagined Dances
creates a space for expansive listening. From a vast archive of historic and contemporary compositions, each interaction spontaneously generates a unique music compilation triggering the inner choreographer in each participant.

Each compilation creates a unique and personal musical score and prompts the possibilities of dance within everyone.

Each piece will be played in its entirety though you may leave at any time. On entering the exhibition space, you will not know which works have been compiled for your program. When you leave, you can choose to know which works and composers were played, and send them to yourself for future danced/dance reference.

Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey are award winning artists working across performative art forms. Their curiosity about sound in space and cultural engagement with sound/music has led them to develop links and works with practitioners nationally and internationally in dance, theatre, installation, film, public art, technology and science.

"I am a great admirer of the work of Madeleine and Tim. They have bravely walked their own path, often having to clesar it with a machete first." Graeme Leak: composer/performer/inventor
