Jury Talk: Mayke Nas

context, lecture, thoughts on appropriation

This concert has already taken place. Click here for our current concert programme.

Mayke Nas her lecture evolves around lots of questions. Does originality exist? Is the use of existing material inevitable? Is every discovery a variation on a previous discovery? Is there a right or a wrong way to cite or imitate? Is being inspired by someone else a form of theft? Is every new sound a new sound? A lecture with lots of questions but without answers.

Compositions by Mayke Nas are performed on September 9 by Ensemble Klang en Slagwerkgroep Den Haag.
