MOTION FOR STOCKHAUSEN is conceived around the films of Arthur Van Gehuchten, belgian anatomist, neurologist and pioneer of clinical cinematography.
MOTION FOR STOCKHAUSEN contains visual samples of «films médicaux» (1904) by Arthur Van Gehuchten and can be described as a choregraphy of images inspired by the music of Stockhausen.
The use of slowmotion in MOTION FOR STOCKHAUSEN could be explained as «a kind of loving meditation on a movement or a solemnity which adds ritual weight to an action, bringing into reality that dramatic image of anguished helplessness...» (Maya Deren in her essay «Cinematography : The Creative Use Of Reality»).
MOTION FOR STOCKHAUSEN was initially made as a part of «Chorée», a music-dance-piece produced by Le Bureau des Arts with a choregraphy of Johanne Saunier and lighting by Jim Clayburg, with music by James Dillon, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Renaud de Putter.
