Works for violin and for viola
The unique creative process of Giacinto Scelsi forces the musician to rediscuss and redefine their agency and artistic engagement while performing his music. Moving away from traditional roles and systems of communication, his improvisatory approach to composition and his disregard for written music encourages performers to develop new strategies for interpretation.
Marco Fusi's album Giacinto Scelsi - works for violin and for viola, published by acknowledged Viennese new music label Kairos, presents listeners with the results of a newly elaborated performance practice of these works, based on archival research, in-depth audio analysis, computer-generated animated scores and extensive exploration of instrumental improvisatory techniques. The liner notes accompanying the album offer detailed insights into the research process leading up to the recording.
This publication is the result of Marco Fusi's PhD Research at the Royal Conservatory Antwerp and the University of Antwerp (docARTES programme), with the support of KCA's research cluster CREATIE and Orpheus Instituut, Ghent.
