 What makes rhythm a rhythm and dancer a dancer? When I was becoming a personality, my favorite pick -up line was "What kind of music do you like?". I was hoping to find companionship with it and shine with my wide knowledge about sub- cultures. Melody and rhythm came always first then lyrics and meaning. Then I travelled above culture-spaces trying to find the rhythm that is re ally mine. I was rather Nordic orientated. And I found myself comparing the moment of now and the si tuations in the past when I met the same rhythm the first time. The honesty, seriousness and thoughts that I have now in comparison with me back in time and then again time forward and again time back and forward, back-forward, FF>REWFF>FF...What rhythm to follow then? Maybe it is the beat of my heart, maybe footsteps, maybe the repetition of failures, maybe the ambitio n of going one phrase further with every day. Henri Hütt is an artist/performer who mostly dances to techno music. He formed Distant Artist position before the popular Nothingness trend and h e deals with the exotics of "not"-polarities. Since 2010 creates one full-length performance a ye ar and focuses on the questions about art every day. Vanity and ambition force him to move towards his dream and while doing that, he is also creating work for himself.
