Metric dozen

Ballet National de Marseille

Metric Dozen music, is a tribute to pulse and rythme in general. For 24 minutes the’s only rhythmical structures, electronic polyrhythms, glitches and noises structurally organised.

There’s no harmony and no melody, but jus straight and complex rhythmical stuff as skeleton for a equally rhythmic dance and choreography. The result is a very powerful show , kind of dark flash. A run towards the end.
