In a three part concert series the Trio Transmitter for new music along with Bio Artist Margherita Pevere explore the life cycle of an artwork: its creation, reception, and deconstruction. In Cells, Sounds & breeding Souls these three stages of being are represented in different forms of expression, growing out of connections built between contemporary music and the artistic-scientific exploration of living materials. The artists interact in a primal landscape made out of organic materials that transform over the three concert segments into an expansive installation. While Margherita Pevere appears as performer, musicians Florian Bergmann (bass clarinet), Benedikt Bindewald (violin/viola) and Alba Gentili-Tedeschi (piano) give life to compositions that birth in March, become in Summer, and finally embrace the time of reshaping in the Autumn. In addition to existing works that fit into the three cycles, Cells, Sounds & breeding Souls features new works by Neo Hülcker, Christian Vasquez, Peter Ablinger, Florian Bergmann, and Benedikt Bindewald. Through the inclusion of everyday objects such as water cookers and bricks, as well as electro-acoustic sounds and video projections, the music’s boundaries open and exchange in dialogue with the Bio Art installation. Bio Art is an art form that, working with living materials and organisms, unavoidably is affected by life cycles. It is dedicated to the observation and production of living processes and moves along the border of art, science, and technology. To create Cells, Sounds & breeding Souls Margherita Pevere focused her artistic research on the differences and intersections of musical time and tempo and the organic material of living organisms. An integral part of this interdisciplinary work is also the process of exchange between all of the artists, and the life cycle that the artistic process itself has undergone. What debates and disputes between the artists have shaped the form of this work and lead to its final form as three evening concert installations?
