Live House
F.K. Donche

Under the heading of Live House the audience is invited to enjoy live presentations of recorded musics selected by experienced listeners. Discovering and enjoying recorded musics while re-evaluating and further shaping the aesthetic experience of listening to them is central to these sit downs.

The time available to any individual for listening to musics recorded is limited when compared to the vast amounts of mass duplicated releases available. For that reason one cannot escape having to choose. Different ways of choosing and presenting recordings will be proposed at Live House during curated listening sessions.

Eclectic selections with unexpected common musical aspects, tackling complete discographies of artists/labels or re-constructing musical styles via connoisseur compiled material are presented. Often focussing on musics forgotten, ignored, hidden or lost, the existing hierarchy of which recordings seem to matter more than others will be challenged.

Presentation formats relate to presenting pieces of music to the listener without providing any details or on the contrary informing the audience very well on history and context. Listening at different speeds than initially intended, overlapping or slicing gaps in the proposed material and repeated listening will enlarge individual music experiences.

Each session, the listener will be challenged to adapt his habits of perceiving recorded musics.
