Phonetic Stories - Ninke Overbeek
What happens if you try to see language and music as equals? If you write and compose in co-creation, without sticking to your own discipline? Not first writing a text or first writing music and then trying to bring them together later, but developing a work process that is radically open. Where there is no linear thinking, simply because the result has no fixed form. What if we go in search of different ways of letting language and music enter into dialogue with one another? When does text become music and when does music turn into text? Can we stretch boundaries, open up registers and rediscover vocabulary, and above all: is it possible to actually create new genres?

Phonetic Stories, a project by Asko|Schönberg and De Tekstsmederij, brings together five composers and five writers. It challenges them to break through the traditional creative process and explore a way of creating for the future.
