This piece of music was composed between March 2008 and February 2009 and finally compiled in late February 2009 for the
painting installation of ANGELIK RIEMER
at modulor house (former Bechstein House) at Moritzplatz in Berlin Kreuzberg.
The installation was implemented in cooperation with Lecoq Gallery on February 28, 2009.
Riemer's a l p h a b e t installation and boKens in room 1 at modulor house
Inside the giant cube my composition for this installation * alfabetBeatMouvie v4* was looped:
It's a big MP3 file (>34MB) - don't play on a slow connection!
Riemer's painting installation was built with 26 pieces of egg tempera paintings conjoined to a 3D object of 2 x 2 m width and 3 m height. The setup included musical support of
a l f a b e t BeatMouvie v4.
The composition is organized with CUBASE 4 and compiles two main compositions: THOUGHT OF YOU, a piano improvisation and BeatMouvie, a kind of experimental sample&voice quarry which delivered three pieces for films which were completed in 2008. Now, in a l f a b e t BeatMouvie v4, part 1 and 3 describe approach and renunciation - that is, coming closer to see Riemer's installation and leaving it, reviewing it before the inner eye.
The middle part walks through the individual paintings, examining surface and/or meaning of colors mingling with the absorptive ground, exposing tender or likewise rough structures.
Christian Schneegass* who visited the vernissage, imaginated 'stellar birth' - that's VERY fine with me:
"(...) Are there visual fixations of dreamlike elusive looks inside or retinal image echos of a sun-glare of macro-micro-cosmic 'moments' experienced on the edge between perception and imagination? Are there astral nebula, as those accompanying the birth of a young planet, on the border between growth and decay, or enigmatic lasting processes of change in an either-or reformulation of energy to matter to energy ...? Readings, associatively falling apart or interleaving, fragile relationship qualities without end - even al prima as pure pictorial quality remain sensual present in the low 'influenced' gesture of only a few, but interacting nuanced colors.(...)"
