INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON SOUNDSCAPE


Tempo Reale - Villa Strozzi - Via Pisana 77 50143 Firenze
Scientific & Music Program May 20-22 2011

MUSIC

abstract

Bernadette JOHNSON Fleeing gardens

Musical landmarks are only fragmentarily present and are blended with noise-sounds and media-splinters.
A sound-trip on the border between inner and outer worlds.
Structures dissolve one another.  Virtual and physical event worlds communicate with each other.
Animal noises remind us of fairy tale figures, seduce us into the world of myth.
In the mounting and mixing process, each noise, each musical fragment and each silence temporarily fulfill an informing function, but in the next instant withdraw from just having had any meaning.
The leitmotiv which guides us through the piece is the choral fragment "Va Pensiero" (G. Verdi: Nabucco) cited from the film "Tosca's Kiss" by Daniel Schmid.
