I am happy and grateful to announce
that I finished my PhD at the University of Huddersfield, a doctor of philosophy in composition by practice and theoretical research.
The title of my thesis is

 

The noise of mind:
A feminist practice in composition

 

Huge thanks to my supervisor Prof. Liza Lim, second supervisor Prof. Monty Adkins, my examiners Prof. Aaron Cassidy and Dr Salomé Voegelin, and the staff and colleagues at university, for the lively exchange about music and art, culture, philosophy, and – yes! – political issues over the last years. I very much enjoyed my part-time research at Huddersfield, and the many performances at university and beyond, that I watched or participated in.

WEISSE HÖRGEBIETE – ein feministischer Atlas des Hörens

[with video, electronics, contrabass recorder, text & lecture]

video still WEISSE HÖRGEBIETE

In dieser Performance nähere ich mich dem Erbe der großen Komponistin und Hörforscherin Pauline Oliveros an, die das Hören als einen politschen Akt bezeichnet hat. Mit Kopf, Körper, Instrument, Stimme und Technik entwerfe ich einen Atlas neuer Hörgebiete aus einer feministischen Haltung heraus. Das persönliche Ohr wird zum politischen Sinnesorgan, mit dem ich meine Umgebung und mein Inneres kritisch erforsche. In den weissen Gebieten auf der Landkarte des Hörens steht die Zeit still, und der Raum weitet sich.

_____
In this performance I recall the eminent composer and researcher into listening Pauline Oliveros, who defined listening as a political act. Using my mind, body, instrument, voice and electronic media I draw a cartography of unknown territories of listening, from a feminist position. My ears, my personal hearing faculties, became political tools of perception which I use to explore my environs and my own inner worlds in a critical way. As I move into blank spaces on the map of listening, time comes to a stop and space widens.

Abstract Pia Palme (Lecture Performance)
Die Exposition der verkörperten Stimme

In meinem Lecture Recital mische ich eine Analyse meiner Arbeiten mit Performance auf der Kontrabassblockflöte und meinen Videoarbeiten. Ich stelle ein Zitat aus der Ilias an den Anfang, die als einer der ältesten Werke für Stimme gilt, und gleich zu Beginn das Hauptthema Zorn aufgreift. Durch die künstlerische Transformation in klangliches Material werden Inhalte wie Zorn, Streit und Leid strukturiert und episch, also singbar. Fast alle meiner neueren Arbeiten enthalten Stimmen, in irgendeiner Form. Ich definiere die Stimme als “Embodiment”, als Gestalt, verkörperlichte Präsenz, die Stimme, Gefühl, Denken und den Körper umfasst. Dies entspricht einer Perspektive des Wahrnehmungsprozesses, die ebendiese Faktoren berücksichtigt. Dementsprechend fasse ich als Komponistin Klang als eine mehrdimensionale Präsenz auf, die im Fall der Stimme eine emotionale, soziale und kognitive Komponente enthält. Die räumliche Ortung dieser Präsenz ist zwingend ein Teil meiner Arbeit. In meinen Werken positioniere ich die verkörperlichte Stimme.

Ausgehend von Jean-Luc Nancys Idee des Hörens und dem postdramatischen Theaterbegriff von Hans-Thies Lehmann erläutere ich die Exposition der Stimme. Die Interpretin/Sängerin wird gegenüber der Gemeinschaft der Zuhörer exponiert, ausgesetzt und ist damit auf sich selbst zurückgeworfen. Die Zuhörer bilden eine soziale Situation; meine Arbeit als Künstlerin wird dadurch politisch. Mit Jean-Luc Godard sehe ich nicht meine Werke, sehr wohl aber mein Komponieren als politisch an.

Ich komponiere mit Texten, die ich verfasse, um die Dimension des Denkens in meine Werke zu bringen. Diese Texte werden dekonstruiert bis zur Unverständlichkeit, der Klang der Sprache als solches stellt dennoch eine tiefe politische Verbindung zwischen Menschen her. Die Selbstreflexion als feministische Komponistin wird Teil meiner Arbeit: ich exponiere mich selbst, als Komponistin, vor der Gesellschaft.

Meine Lecture setzt Elemente des postdramatischen Theaters in einer musikalisch-performativen Situation um. Verschiedene Ebenen teilen miteinander Raum und Zeit, sind simultan ablaufende Vergänglichkeiten.

I found these two quotations, which have inspired the creative process:

“Punctuation is part of the mechanics of writing” 

Gerard Salton, former Computation Laboratory, Harvard University, in:
‘The Use of Punctuation Patterns in Machine Translation’ 1958.

“You punctuate your speech with nails, with glass, with mirrors, with chrome. With sharpness and always some danger of a stab or a jagged edge. You punctuate your speech with darkness.”

Anne Waldman, in:
‘The Iovis Trilogy. Colors in the Mechanism of Concealment.’ 2011.

Or, my own thoughts in German:

Eine meterlange Partitur auf Lochkartenrollen von Strickmaschinen dient zur Notation und als Objekt; im Stück von Pia Palme sind Punktuation und Musterbildung zentrale Themen. Das Regelwerk der Punktuation strukturiert die Sprache, verhindert Mehrdeutigkeit, und mittels gestanzter Lochkarten lassen sich Maschinen aller Art auf analoge Weise ansteuern. Die Mechanismen der Gewohnheit sind allerdings brüchig, findet die Komponistin, und beschäftigt sich lieber mit Rissen und Löchern, die interessante Blickpunkte freigeben und die Ungewissheit einladen.

I cooperated for the first time with renowned visual artist Doris Schmid in:

MOMENT MAGNETIQUE
Doris Schmid: video/Pia Palme: sound

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I worked with a combination of an electronic track and live performance. The theme for the music was membranes and transitional fields. My idea was to compose the music – including live performance – with a strong performative identity, as a juxtaposition to the visual level. I wanted to add yet another layer/dimension to the video present, in space, rather than merely creating a sound-track for a film. As materials, I used field recordings, processed analogue synthesizers, voice/s and my contrabass recorder.

In the first part, I read from texts which I wrote for the performance, while pacing up and down on the left side of the screen on stage. I used a throat microphone and radio transmission to spatialise my voice into the sound system. My compositional aim was to develop a specific dramaturgy of fragmented closeness and width respectively, by structuring differently shaped auditory fields. I merged sounds and musics from the past and the present during performance.

A recording will soon be available.

Relatively Scary

by Pia Palme & Electric Indigo (2014)

Pia Palme reflects the dynamic instability the passenger senses with her specific techniques of playing the contrabass recorder. Acceleration overcoming gravity is present in her sounds. Electric Indigo contrasts them with industrial noises to accentuate the rotation. Her uncanny pulse increasingly disintegrates as an incisive reminder of the finite nature of experience.

The amplified resonant strings of the viola d’amore and the voice of Viennese vocalist Claudia Cervenka sounded out of this beautifully crafted old wooden box I brought from Austria, and sculptured paper…

And once more, goose feathers – also used by the performer.

DAS FANTASTISCHE DRITTE widmet sich in einer Reihe von Salons unkonventionellen Partituren als Niederschrift, Dokumentation, Erinnerung und Arbeitstool und untersucht sie auf Übersetzungen in zeitgenössischen Tanz / Performance und angrenzende Kunstfelder.
Die Salons folgen einer musikalischen Mehrstimmigkeit, in der sich Unterschiede miteinander verweben, wie in einem vielseitigen Gespräch. Fragen sind „Was wäre eine zeitgenössische Partitur? Was soll durch deine Partitur wirksam werden? Welche Welt willst Du mit einer Partitur erzeugen?“
Prozess und Produkt wollen sich hier als mögliche „soziale Partituren” überlappen.
