"The sound work Lichtung is the original score for a dance solo by choreographers Antoine Effroy and Anne Rudelbach and performed by Catherine Jodoin. The performance premiered on March 26, 2008 at Kampnagel in Hamburg, Germany. The concept of the dance performance was to begin from a unique situation and sustain this physical state as long as possible. By adding unique and non-repetitive movements, the choreography slowly evolves, starting at the back of the stage and gradually moving towards the front, as if by zooming inward. The sound follows this evolution or curve, not necessarily in volume, but rather by changes in density and speed to accompany the performer's phrase changes. Essential to De Mey's work is the dramaturgy of sound, often combined with research in change of perception through spatialized sound or music. His music has a strong focus on filmic qualities with the tendency to suggest a minimalist composition, allowing sounds to find their place and evolve over time. Every single bit of the composition organically changes throughout the layout by gentle analog and digital manipulation. Yves De Mey often works together live or in studio with Christoph De Boeck/Audiostore and Peter Van Hoesen. He shared stage with such noted artists as Kaffe Matthews, Christian Fennesz, Alex Waterman, and Bo Wiget." (label info)
