Title: KÖRPERWELTEN

Year: 2008

Duration: 15 minutes

Genre: solo music with media

Instrumentation: amplified string instrument with media


Instrumentation details: amplified strings instrument (violin, or viola, or cello), electronics and video projection

Instrumentation remarks: amplification must be routed according to the score and it functions as “analogue” spatialization. Possible performance by violinist, violist or cellist. 


Composition is a study of inner body world. Medical investigations were used as instrument to collect material for video and electronics layer. Investigation of blood circulation system was base to create music composition. Graphic music notation is analogic to dance choreography notation. Performer must be focused on experiencing own body - the string instrument part is composed in such a manner, that musician will feel pain while performing. Performer feel paint to “overcome” traditional and classicaly trained positions to learn that there are many forgotten and surpressed by culture ways of playing.
