Rouvelas Antonis: Of that which already began
Beschreibung / Description:
Of that which already began is a work for three soloists, fixed media and live electronics through effect pedals, as well as optional extra media. The concept of the work suggests a model of coexistence between multiple independent sonic sources on a common ground, which is self-defined by the sonic material and attitude and it is supported by the visual environment (staging, lighting, video etc).
In the current version of the piece Antonis Rouvelas (composition) collaborated with Yasaman Hasani (video) and Schallfeld ensemble for premiering the piece as part of the performance Metanaklasi (2018, Theater am Lend, Graz). The result is presented here with the audio of the live performance and the video of Yasaman.
