Jasna Veličković - Shadow study #4
written for Anita Tomašević and Jasna Veličković
instrumentation: piano four coils/hands
The sound heard as the final product of composing is a ‘shadow’ of the already existing sound bur also a new 'print' of Chopin Prelude no.4 op.28. The reality of piano sound is deconstructed, so the instrument assumes the function of a loudspeaker and becomes a 'postpiano'. Existing compositional-performing input is used as ready-made to obtain a new output. In the process one sound reality produces another.
premiered December 23, 2009 Avaton Festival, Cyprus
