This work features speech segments by D. Trump, with the original images warped (slow / fast motion) and the sound replaced by a virtual 'orchestra' of improvisers (the material was assembled after posting an online call for participants). The result: a partially humoristic, partially horrifying video clip, which is used as an interactive video score, or a virtual interface for free improvisation. FAKE NEWS | STAY TUNED addresses the pressing existential questions of individuals who inhabit a world which is not only reflected by social-media and video-sharing platforms, but is, in fact, very much shaped by them.
How to play: Listen to a "re-improvised" Trump, or record a new trump for 30 seconds yourself using your voice or any other instrument!
This work is dedicated to all you lazy people out there: Without leaving the comfort of your house / sofa / internet browser, you can play the video, improvise with it, and even record yourself and later play back the result. Anyone can participate (musicians / non musicians), react and interact.

FAKE NEWS | STAY TUNED In a Clockwork-Orange manner, we are all brutally fed with fake news, bot accounts, and politically and ideologically polarizing echo chambers. How to deal with the disorienting forced exposure? How to remain creative? How to not let the bad guys win?
-- Improvisation is the answer. --
It is a musically proactive strategy which lets your voice be heard, a personal act of resistance. As well as, it is an artistic remedy against a harsh, dystopian reality, a musically therapeutic act. Hope you enjoy the experience!
