"collage mélodique" by Oliver Frick.
It's a cooperation piece with him.
I created the concept for the special exhibition of works by Michel Majerus the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart.
Our wonderful Cellist (ensemble cross.art) and I have interviewed the pedestrians on the street in the city.
We showed 4 pictures of Michel Majerus ( in ipad ) and asked the people spontaneously to express what they come to mind.
Michel Majerus frequently used known representational material he composed collages.
In Majerus's works he cited phenomena of popular culture such as computer games, comics and advertising, as well as the art-historical repertory of Minimal Art and Pop Art.
This sampling method that combines different image elements freely, he has given new impetus to painting.
The concept is to create music an implementation Based on Mejerus's arts technique.
" collage mélodique " consists of excerpts known works of piano literature that merge into one another.
The keys of the piano control the sounds of interviews and samples from a variety of sources of omnipresent everyday culture, from the well Majerus refers the materials for his paintings.
Yes, such an arts concept is not new more today.
2 important points ;-)
- this music should be special for Majerus's paintings. In this regard is most exciting way how can you connect between Mejerus's Art and music, as well as between two periods when Majerus lived and today.
- The technique for composing this music "collage mélodique" and Technology and skill for live-electronics by Oliver Frick are very high quality.
Also this composer's Contemplation for "Gestaltung" and his beautiful aesthetics for music fascinate the audiences.
If you listen the music "collage mélodique" at first, and then you will watch Majerus's pictures, I'm sure, you would say "these pictures are like frozen "collage mélodique" ;-)
