Katharina Klement HOPE
Composition for piano & two transducers (2011)
HOPE was developed in 2011 for the multimedia project ‘HOLE: In Search of Opera without Opera’, and was performed at the Arts Festival Ptuj in Slovenia. (cooperators: Lynn Book,conception/voice/text – Doris Schmid, video – Robin Starbuck, video – Katharina Klement, conception/piano/electronics)
A musical motive is played back in many repetitions in the piano body itself with two transducers placed on its strings. In this way the material is gradually transformed without any further electronic aid.
Hope as a repetitive, always changing phenomenon.
HOPE is now available on the CD ‘Jalousie’ with other pieces by Katharina Klement: http://nocords.net/
