You are cordially invited by current resident Katharina Gross (cello) for the presentation/concert „Transformation“ (duration: 30’) on Saturday 1 August 2020, at 15.00 or 16.00 hours, together with Aurélio Edler-Copes (composition & live electronics). Registration is mandatory: [email protected]. More information about Katharina's residency: https://vandoesburghuis.com/en/residents/katharina-gross-2020/
On the basis of their earlier collaboration, composer Aurélio and cellist Katharina wish to embark on their large collaborative project:
„Transformation“ which deals with the phenomenon of Trance. The experience and research of Corine Sombrun, a French writer and journalist who travelled to Mongolia and discovered her ability to fall into trance through shamanic rhythmic patterns, is one of the sources of inspiration. In Transformation, the cellist becomes a „centre of power“ and slips into the role of a mediator between impalpable external powers and the audience. The composition is planned to be musically massive and powerful, continuous but with stark contrasts, and highly physical on the side of the performer.
