Active | De-Active (Cavite Leg)

Active | De-Active 2010 kicks off this Saturday (October 9) in Espasyo Siningdikato creatiVEnue to showcase two exciting frontiers of music which are experimental and improvised music. The festival called Active | De-Active: An Inventive Music Festival 2010, is an international music festival, which will tour three Philippine cities – Cavite, Manila and Davao – from October 9 – 16.

The festival will consist of a series of live performances, workshops, presentation of methods and practices, creative collaborations and artist-talks by international and local participating artists, in an effort to present and exchange artistic ideas and musical experiences that will contribute to the appreciation and understanding of these developments in music.

This will provide a platform for informed discussions of the cultural, developmental and educational aspects of improvisation and experimentation in music, and at the same time, present its artistic and technical practices.

The festival is also an attempt to gather a community of experimental musicians, improvisers, new media art practitioners, musicologists, and teachers who can share and exchange knowledge that would benefit the understanding of improvised and experimental music.

The Cavite Leg will happen in Espasyo Siningdikato creatiVEnue, an independent art space located at Block 11 Lot 9 Congressional Road, Bgy. Sta.Fe Dasmariñas, Cavite (near DLSU-Dasmariñas, in front of Dan Phil Hardware), on October 9 (Saturday).
