Zoom in/dolly out - Monika Szpyrka International Festival of Contemporary Music Warsaw Autumn

Dolly zoom filming technique depends on quickly zooming the zoom lens while the camera dollies (moves) away from the subject. is creates a perspective distortion; the background gets modified, while the foreground remains unchanged. This effect is usually emotionally charged, and is used to represent quick reactions, such as the protagonist having a brainwave, realising something, or other important situations. 

I translated this juxtaposition of two plans into the concept of a piece in which the music material and the female performers’ actions on the stage are related in an analogous manner. Composed specially for the Feminine Forms project.
