sublimation

feathers - group

sublimation is a new music concert based on the poetic world of the clouds. Clouds are in a constant deformation and it is the will of the observer to see what he wants in them. Another image associated with clouds our their dialectic nature, heavy, dark clouds in contradiction with light, almost transparent one at the end of the sublimation. This world can be transposed in music and this is what between feathers are doing in this project. The listener can see what he wants in the ephemeral music played by the four musicians.

Lorenzo Troiani | Appunti per una conchiglia

2021 | commissioned by between feathers ensemble | supported by SKE Fonds

“Appunti per una conchiglia" ist von  einem Gedicht von Francis Ponge inspiriert. Die Hauptidee des Stücks hat mit der Muschel und  Deep-Listening zu tun. Wir alle haben den Klang der Muschel mindestens einmal erlebt. Wir  nehmen eine Muschel und bringen sie langsam ans Ohr. Zuerst hören wir ein kontinuierliches  Geräusch, weißes Rauschen. Es ist sehr leise. Wenn wir weiter zuhören, stellen wir fest, dass  dieser Klang komplexer ist, als es scheint. Mit der Zeit lernen wir, auf die Details dieses Klangs zu  hören: Es gibt verschiedene Elemente: Luft, Dynamik, Reverb. Die Idee des Stücks ist es, an  dieser intimen Erfahrung zu arbeiten.

Feliz Anne Reyes Macahis | NEW WORK

2021 | commissioned by between feathers ensemble 

The new piece for voice, flute, accordion, and percussion takes Gaston Bachelard’s Air and  Dreams: An Essay on the Imagination of Movements as an inspiraCon. My approach in  rethinking the idea of “imaginaCon” involves traversing precision and flexibility in shaping  sound events. I also take into consideraCon the use of every musician’s (speaking) voice. I  am interested to discover how careful and elaborate combination of instrumental and vocal  sounds evokes and transforms images as they are experienced.
