Compositions

October 2016 – present

CONSTELLATIONS

This on-going series of compositions is dedicated to making relationship beyond linear timelines and physical borders audible as music. I translate planetary constellations into sound and from a growing series of individual scores, work towards a space-time sound installation in which all music is audible as one.

 

Some scores contain the music of just any eternal moment in time, some of individual moments of birth and death, others are based on relationships of lovers, friends, grandmother and granddaughters and many more. There are scores such as LALIBELA (9.4.3003) which sound as constellations in the future and NINEVEH (29.6.612 BC) which sounds our past. Each composition can be perceived by itself as well.

SISTERHOOD

As part of the Constellations project I composed a musical piece based on the birth time of artist Mariana Hahn and me. We met 3 years ago. Yet we are connected and always feel how the other one is doing. By transposing the bonds of our sisterhood into one sound experience I wish to create music that honours the fundamental connective tissue of life beyond what is called blood relationship.
