In this biegungen night, music is not the only artistic medium. Intermediality is typical of all of the three acts presented, however in completely diverging ways, reaching from poetic to humorous and abstract approaches. Composer and pianist Makiko Nishikaze presents ‘AugenOhrenHören’ – new visual compositions, two with sound, three without sound. The films with sound are videos for her compositions for harpsichord and clavichord: carta marina more 4 and clavics-more 4.
Gabi Schaffner presents ‘Fazoletto per un Eternità (Handkerchief For An Eternity). New Pandemic Music and the Life of Mauricia/o “Farfalle” Pucci’. Quite a different “walk on the wild side” offers this documentary about the Italian new music composer Mauricio Pucci. Born in 1890 as a girl in a Tuscan village, she ran away and decided to take on the identity of a man. Fate sees her falling in love with New York composer Charles Griffe who later died of influenza. Back in Naples, Pucci founded the world’s first “Sneeze orchestra”, but found a comparatively early end in 1926. Women in Music are important: Mauricia Pucci’s memory will be celebrated in the shape of 5 hand manufactured 7″ singles.
