five ways to move (2022-23)

 

Everything moves, nothing is still, neither permanent. We walk, we travel, we change, we journey in time. And what is left within us from this? memories of moments. Sometimes, we also record such moments, in lots of different ways, by making something. This helps us recollect, remember, make sense of reality and ourselves. In our short life but full of a constant flow of memories, we need this.

The project started in 2021 as five miniatures for a live ensemble of eight players (flutes, clarinets, percussion, piano, violin, viola, cello, double bass), which was commissioned by dissonArt ensemble, for their 'NFT Project'. Each miniature was no more than 30 seconds long, and it was created in parallel with five short videos that could be shown at the same time.

    As a commission by Born Creative Festival 2023, the project was developed further between 2022-23, when all five miniatures and videos were expanded to a total 9,5 minutes work for video art and live octet.

   The work was first performed by Ensemble Nomad (conductor: Sato Norio) at Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre, on 8 July 2023, during Born Creative Festival 2023
