Interview with Nora Fischer

On the importance of taking time to stimulate creativity

dossier: TIJD / TIME

This interview is part of our series about Time. This series of publications is an investigation of the effects of time (and the pressure of time) on making. Singer Nora Fischer talks about her career and the importance of taking time to stimulate creativity.

"We live in a society where we don’t value time."
Amsterdam-based singer and vocal performer Nora Fischer is renowned for her adventurous approach to live performance and her creative and genre-defying collaborations. Originally trained as a classical singer, she developed a strong interest in the many other music genres and art forms around her.
Nora can also be found a lot in Splendor Amsterdam, as an active part of the collective keeping this independent art hub vibrant and flourishing. She occasionally finds her way to the stage through several collaborations, either as a vocal performer, musical or non-musical storyteller, or by playing the bass or keys in the back corner.
In this series of film interviews, as part of Time, guest-curator Irene Constandse talks for us with various artists, thinkers and makers. Camera: Kees Veling.
