DNK Ensemble re-enact David Dunn’s Entrainments 2 (1985)

DNK Ensemble will perform a reenactment of David Dunn’s Entrainments 2 as the closing event of the Zone2Source’s exhibition Resonant.

Entrainments 2 (Geomantic Mappings of Eco-Systemic Resonance), is one of David Dunn’s seminal sonic land art pieces. Conceived in 1985 it remains a radical and relevant performance, in terms of contemporary music moving from the concert hall into the environment, and the use of the environment as a generative element, the importance of Dunn’s work can hardly be overstated. It is a rarity that his thoroughly original and influential works are performed, this being the first re-enactment of Dunn’s work in the Netherlands.

DNK Ensemble:
Martijn Tellinga – documentation, voice, oscillator
Koen Nutters – documentation, voice, oscillator
Seamus Cater – documentation, voice, oscillator
André Avelăs – parabolic & binaural microphones
Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec – sound design

Coming from a very diverse background as a violinist (contemporary and early music), an electronic designer (San Diego State University electronic music studio), a music theorist (assistant to Harry Partch), and a composer; David Dunn has spent the last forty years exploring the relationships between music, ambient sound and language, fusing bioacoustics, linguistics, deep ecology, computer technology and musical composition into new forms of musical composition, performance and experience. Today, he rarely presents concerts or installations and instead prefers the lecture format or to engage in site-specific interactions or research-oriented activities.

Like many of Dunn's works, Entrainments 2 investigates the phenomenology of ecology. Fusing technological and astrological chartings, it explores notions of site, resonance and perimeter, staging modulation of real-time and documented experiences, mappings of different types of site-specific data, and performative negotiations of the ambient surrounding.

The DNK-ensemble is an ever changing group of multi disciplinary performers brought together by DNK-Amsterdam. DNK ensemble's working method is based on a collaborative composition process where different performative, musical, textual, visual and historic material is thrown into a melting pot made up of mutable timeframes and spatial and aural dynamics. By arranging in time and space, equating sound, object and action and letting go of the singular compositional ego, the material can be influenced by the collaboration with new logics being discovered in the dynamic of the pack.
