Sol # // La ♭
The sound of sol# is exactly the same as la♭.
My hands are on the piano.
Chords are floating in my mind.
The beats of my heart are fast.
“There is a different kind of danger in the daylight”. “And in the theater, I want to change my seat, just so I can step on everybody’s feet”. “Yeah, but if you, if you just wanna go out drinkin’, honey, won’t you invite me along please? Oh, I’ll be so good to ya babe”!
The sound of sol♯ is the same sound of la♭.The distinction is rather a constructed reality to serve the pleasure of the mind. It’s a door to another potential space to be defined.
A chord consists of 3 notes, each one having their individual tone. As an ensemble they can emit major or minor emotions/harmonies.
A symphony is an elaborate musical composition for an orchestra, typically in four movements.
A symphony (derived from the greek: syn+phoni / plus + voice) means in accord, in harmony. In modern greek it is used as an agreement, a deal.
On stage there are 3 distinctive characters. Characters that have emerged from the peculiarities of the performers themselves. Their movement and speech is trying to expand the space for their individual inner logics, that are different than what we could call common logic, to manifest. The peculiar behaviors and expressions of inner desires that are glimpsing (and exist in the - in between) in everyday life have the chance to emerge in the space, in order to disappear and recreated. As if creation and construction is the only function that can keep us alive.
Sol # // La ♭ had its premiere and on the 15th - 16th of April 2016, in context of the
SNDO2 Festival 2016, in Amsterdam.
