>>> more about the piece

In this piece for voice and ensemble (mezzosoprano, percussion, live electronics and a ‘baroque’ ensemble performing with flauto traverso, cembalo and bass viol at a=415hz) I wrap a composition in two layered modules around a fragmented baroque Prelude for cembalo by Elisabeth Jacquet da La Guerre.

Premiere on December 29th & 31st, 2013 at off-Theater Vienna,
with Lore Lixenberg, Berndt Thurner, Sonja Leipold, Sylvie Lacroix, Eva Neunhäuserer and myself.

Montparnasse, 29. October 2013

Currently I am in Paris, studying with composer Eliane Radigue.
We work on a new solo-version of her piece OCCAM for the Kueng contrabass recorder. It appears that the instrument perfectly embraces the piece. I feel very grateful for the process, for the exchange

and the richness of sound.

In May 2103 my working place is in Tehran. I am delighted to be Austrian Artist in Residence at the teahouse-pavillon of the Austrian ambassador’s residence. The “teahouse” is like an isolated retreat cell, providing the luxury of space for art, creativity and research.

In a country with a climate like Iran, a garden is truly a paradise. It is protected by high walls, to keep out wind, dust and heat. In a bustling, noisy, dusty city of 14 millions, trees become true friends: without hesitation they share their gift of coolness and relaxation. I am surrounded by friendly, sentient beings full of generosity. I am grateful.

ABSTRIAL ist radikale, zeitgenössische Oper in größtmöglicher Transparenz, eine flüchtige Darbietung steter und unaufhaltsamer Prozesse. Ivan Fantinis Installation aus aufgehendem Brotteig und Gläsern bildet die Achse, um die sich die Performance von Paola Bianchi, der beiden live musizierenden Komponistinnen und der SängerInnen bewegt. Motiv ist der Zerfall alltäglicher Werte, Bedeutungen, Strukturen und die daraus entstehenden von den KünstlerInnen neu zusammengesetzten Gefüge. Texte der US-amerikanischen Dichterin Anne Waldman geben zusammen mit fallenden Gläsern die Rhythmik der allgemeinen Dekomposition und Restrukturierung vor. ABSTRIAL setzt diese materielle Ebene in direkten Zusammenhang mit zeitgenössischer Komposition, elektronischer Musik und Performance. Der Titel ist eine Zusammensetzung aus den Worten Abstraktion und Material.

Storyboard for ABSTRIAL: created by Bianchi&Palme

ABSTRIAL_Presse_07-kl

Foto by: Markus Gradwohl

ABSTRIAL is an opera of maximum transparency, a presentation of imperturbably continuing processes. Ivan Fantini’s installation made of bread dough and glasses constitutes the ideational axis for the performances of Paola Bianchi, the two composers who play live, and the vocalists.

Guiding themes are the disintegration of quotidian values, meanings and fabrics, and consequently arising structures re-composed by the artists. The gradually changing installation resulting in falling glasses join with Anne Waldman’s text to create structure and rhythm ruling decomposition and reorganization.

ABSTRIAL connects the material level directly to contemporary composition, electronic music and text. The made-up word ABSTRIAL is a composite of “abstraction” and “material”.

Composer Pia Palme uses four voices in a radical way: a baritone sings the solo part – partially transmitted via headphones as an audio-score. Three female voices form a choir that reads from conventional scores. Electric Indigo’s composition is based on language and voice too. Yet, using granular and spectral analysis of spoken words, she creates entirely abstract sounds and textures.

The body is Paola Bianchi’s specific language, her instrument, but also her study subject. Both in performance and in choreography, position and shape of bodies in space are of equal importance as the “inner” choreography of muscles, tendons, skin, and the reactions within the body.

The American writer Anne Waldman provided a customized text for the play, tailored to its concept and themes. Italian text fragments by Ivan Fantini and German parts by Pia Palme complement the literary fundament.

“Time doesn’t fly, it is a timeless present that we don’t comprehend. Is there any ‘here’? Is there any ‘now’? Time doesn’t fly, it is an approximation of our perception. The sky is above and below, you can only lose yourself.”(Ivan Fantini)
