PERF. No 001/2018 Piece for performer with double bass bow and electronics

Created by Ilmārs Šterns

Subtitle “Music Skin”

Act: Solo (duo) performance

Duration: 7 minutes


Project: In the performance Stern_Act_IV ('Music Skin') the body becomes the instrument played with the aid of a bow. A microphone enhances the power sprung from the contact. The music heard is the dynamic research of the performer identity, through the contrast of exposure and intimacy. Hearing and touching find a strong and sensuous connection. The body is freed by its clothes like the instrument is from its case. The skin becomes a vibrant surface and visceral passions animate the playing body.


Materials: Guitar combis, double bass bow, contact mic, piano chair.
