Obecność (Inherence) - Marek Chołoniewski International Festival of Contemporary Music Warsaw Autumn

go to content

Each sound object has its own energy source, stemming from the material, spatial form, but mostly from its internal sonic structure. The energy ow inside the object’s molecular structure is a sort of sonic vibration resonating with the environment. Entering into direct contact with individuals located within a kinetic soundspace is an antrosonic solid formula. 

Antrosonic solids are rhetorical substitutes of meaning, based on opposed and close elements, sensual perception of presence of people and objects as well as the relations between them. Each microcomposition has its centre: a point in which the sound object is subjected to selected processes of nearing/distancing, halting/breaking out, transience/penetration, encircling/taking off.

The interludes fill the space between the compositions of Elżbieta Sikora and Krzysztof Knittel, with their strong programmatic and historical references. They are a form of meditation and purification, a time break on an asemantic sound structure. 

The sound material comes from a session of Sonotherapy performed on the author of the installation by Luz Mando August 11, 2021.
