FIRST COMPOSITION COMMISSION FOR DOMUS Print E-mail

Kodering - - Music by Dimitri Voudouris - - Film by Aryan Kaganof

Concept: Mareli Stolp


One of the first projects of its kind in South Africa, Kodering for amplified piano and film, was commissioned by DOMUS in January 2011. This project, conceived by Mareli Stolp and supported by visual artist and filmmaker Aryan Kaganof and composer Dimitri Voudouris, takes the form of a live performance combining composed music, visual material and improvisation. Voudouris’s composition, based on film material created by Kaganof, will be performed in July 2011 for the first time by pianist Mareli Stolp. The performance will be an interactive exploration of the possibilities for intermediality in the collaborative connection between filmed material and instrumental composition, and improvisation and interactive responsiveness between pianist and filmmaker. In the live performance, Kaganof will project sections of the filmed material without previously determining the sequence. In turn, the pianist will respond with Voudouris’s composed material, again in an improvisatory manner not previously determined, and with the musical material presented in the sequence that the pianist judges to be most effective in response to the visual material in that moment.
