This composition is dedicated to making relationship beyond linear timelines and physical borders audible as music.
I translate the planetary constellation at time of birth into sound and from a growing series of individual scores, work towards a spacial sound installation in which all music sound together, in concert. The word “concert” or “to be in concert” derives from the Latin words “concentare” (to sing together) and “concerere” (to unite, to join).
Some scores contain the music of single birth times, others are based on individual relationships of lovers, friends, grandmother and granddaughters and many more. Each composition can be perceived by itself as well.
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.
„Look at the sky. Watch the clouds. Listen to their music.“
In May 2020 I built a drum using deer skin. All skin which was cut off during the process turned into a series of scores.
