Jeroen Speak: Jung's Shadow...Embedded video
See details ➔
Jung's Shadow was written in 2013 for Severine Ballon and Mark Knoop.
The Jungian ‘Shadow’ can include anything outside of the conscious world, a reservoir for human darkness, and the seat of creativity. The musical starting point is primarily gestural and ‘pre-gestural’, representing attempts to grasp something before it becomes symbolized, perhaps an extension of my previous interest in the writings of the Brazilian philosopher Vilem Flusser, this work seeks to establish a mode of working in the first person, avoiding the ‘ego’ by eschewing constructive and formal approaches in favor of more instinctive and local ones.
