Suite Cubic engl



Bach for baroque cello, beatbox and dance

With the principle that music equals movement, equals noise, the 3 artists Johann Sebastian Bach’s first two suites for cello solo analyze and put them back together for the unusual trio of baroque cello, beatbox and dance. The result is a work that uses the different art forms as instruments of equal value and thus allows Bach’s sounds and compositional structures to appear in a completely new way.
