INFO

Composed by Maarten Van Cauwenberghe, Elko Blijweert and Bjorn Eriksson, the Original Music from The Sea Within is a thrilling ménage à trois of acclaimed soundscape artists. As it’s already given away by the title, their first collaboration comprises the original scores to The Sea Within, a contemporary-dance performance by Voetvolk, the company of Van Cauwenberghe and dancer/choreographer Lisbeth Gruwez.

The Original Music from The Sea Within is Voetvolk’s second record, after 2017’s Bring It to Our Senses, which comprised the original scores to the company's triptych of the ecstatic body (consisting of It’s going to get worse and worse and worse, my friend, AH/HA and We’re pretty fuckin’ far from okay).

The electronic sound design of the Original Music from The Sea Within is partly inspired by musical experiments: the combination of minimalistic synths, a tingling game with frequencies and a strong, persistent bass will push this record to the bottom of your senses.

PRESS QUOTES

The Sea Within already is dance performance of the year. – *****

by Magali Degrande – Het Nieuwsblad

Not one movement is fixed, and yet everything seems completely worked-out.
Like a dynamical painting. (…) The Sea Within is a provisional peak in
an unfolding body of work. – ****

by Filip Tielens – De Standaard

The Sea Within is a real and 100% female bomb of exceptional sensuality.
The total commitment of the dancers, their ‘occupied’ bodies and their
irradiant faces form a fascinating and magnetizing halo.

by Delphine Goater – Res Musica

The Sea Within is not trying to convince anyone of a certain ideology, nor is
it deconstructing or installing a fixed image of women. Therefore it’s
anything but just another drop in the ocean of choreographies.

by Thomas Hahn – Tanz

TRACY DANISON ABOUT ‘THE SOUND OF THE SEA WITHIN’

The Sound of The Sea Within at first might be heard as “sound”, birdsong, clicking switches or “music”, purling waters of crazy wisdom, referencing echoes of Charles Ives or John Cage: the necessary sound-off of dance, a vague roar or an absence that pretends stillness, a vibration that is there, not far, that points and prods the movement, helps the spectator see the “dance” in it.

But something exceptional happens in The Sea Within: an alchemical transmutation of pulse, blood, mind, performance experience and personal intimacy makes Sound herself a performer. I mean this literally: my mind’s eye saw Sound as it saw the other performers. As Papuan English would rightly speak it, Sound byemby braid as the others braid her, she is byemby undone as the others are undone, byemby caresses, is caressed, byemby pursuing, byemby pursued and byemby becomes flesh like their flesh.

This transmutation to Sound was amazing to me, the realization of the hope I always have in watching live performance, for me, the reason live performance persists and will persist.
