Tadas and Matt do Rock'n'Roll... Badly
Performance, Birmingham, 2015
Tadas and Matt do Rock'n'Roll... Badly is another take in my and Springer's attempts to rework jazz, swing and blues classics. In this particular instance we rework Gene Vincent’s Be-Bop-A-Lula though our prism of repetition of segments of the lyrics and repetitive sound patterns of our sequencers. Our performed bodies are doubling the setting from a rock'n'roll classic Grease, projected on the wall behind us. The rift between then and now and our ineptitude to perform rock'n'roll hopefully adds up to a folly of ridiculousness.Tadas and Matt do Rock'n'Roll... Badly is performed with the artist Matthew Springer.
