PARADE, Day 2 – Port

Parade was a three-day music-and-movement event which cover Linz from 1st - 3rd May 2009 in different soundworlds. It ignores the traditional understanding of parade as a military display of disciplined marching in straight lines and in strict tempo, as well as the exotica of parades, which are often reinforcing stereotypical views. In academic terms, the concept may be regarded as deconstructing the image of the other and countering the idea of musical extravaganza. VISIT THE PARADE BLOG: www.linz09.at/parade-blog
