Ádám Márton Horváth (H) – Interview with our guests at L1danceFest 2019

L1danceFest 2019
Movement-based International Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts
18th annual edition organized by L1 Association in Budapest

Interview with Ádám Márton Horváth
– You are involved in three performances at L1danceFest. In addition to the improvisation action with Willany Leó, you also work with Flóra Veres and István Kovács / Roland Szabo. How did you find each other with Flóra? What kind of musical contribution can we expect from you in this performance, will you play live?
– Flóra is working on an earlier solo, which was originally in silence, but now she gets a live music accompaniment. This is an exciting challenge for both of us, because I don't really play live. But the rehearsals so far have been promising, and we're getting ready for the show.

 – You also create music for experimental movies. What is the difference between composing for a movie or creating music for a dance performance? Which direction do you prefer in the work with István Kovács / Roland Szabo, and how much freedom did you get in your work?
– I approached István's performance from a noisy, bustling direction, and nowadays there are similar lines in my film music as well. The music is not ready yet, but in the performance linked to the screening I try to accompany the images of István and Roland with some discreet noise. István himself uses sounds, which are very impressive in themselves.
– What are your own running music projects now? What is it that inspires you and what are you musically planning to experiment with in the near future?
– Lately I've been putting my own projects on the air under the name Donau. I recently completed Musica Arthropoda, a small album inspired by Anna Erdei's drawn creatures, and musically I was interested in the noises of small creatures, space insects. The album can be listened to online and you can download it as well.
