PRESENTATION: Hybridity and Anti-Colonial Orchestras @ A Postcolonial Recherche

Jon was the first guest speaker at a residency sponsored at A Postcolonial Recherche residency for 10 composers based in developing or emerging countries.

How contemporary is music in the 21st century, if it continues to be so eurocentric? In a cooperation with the Goethe-Institut, the Ensemble Recherche invites ten composers and sound artists from developing countries and emerging economies to an artistic exchange. They will discuss (post-)colonialism and condense their knowledge into artistic results. At the end of the one year project period, there will be musical performances and hopefully some insight in our own patterns of evaluation.
