«However, Lump200’s directionless universe leads you back to yourself.»
That’s how Forced Exposure described the music of René Desalmand’s beats and lyrics project back in the noughties. Alongside working on the next Lump200 album, Desalmand is now collaborating with partners to develop a web app that facilitates open, collective and public production of audio content within a network. The album itself will therefore be based on an open format. The involvement of and distinction between stage and floor are being challenged in the digital space. René Desalmand is a saxophonist who composes and produces music for radio plays and installations and develops transdisciplinary work.

«Get Going!» has existed as a FONDATION SUISA funding offer since 2018. With this new form of a grant, creative and artistic processes that do not fall within established categories are given a financial jump-start.
