Deep Etude (2018)
Alma Söderberg

A deep etude of embodied rhythm. Polyrhythm is the living object of study. A layering of rhythms by means of recorded sound, live sound and dance will take the listener back to where she already is. Deep Etude is a piece of dance and a piece of in which both are separable and inseparable in the ear-eye of the beholder. They are only separable insofar as they can change places with each other, and only inseparable insofar as the one makes the other perceivable. They play apart. The foreground and the background shift, the one carves itself into the other, the dance becomes the backing track of the music, the movement excavates the sound and brings it to the surface. Deep Etude is a study that is a spirit, a composition that is a practice or an object that is a skill.
