“Durch|Glas” is a site-specific work which has been developed in response to the venue and its architectural context of functional modernism: The BHROX bauhaus reuse, a glass pavilion made from old façade elements of the Bauhaus Dessau. During a period of research, the glass material of the building has been examined in its physical and metaphorical nature. The site produces a unique timbre through its materiality and thus is transformed into a musical instrument on a macro level. The performer uses physical gesture as another way of communicating through glass. The physical space due to its nested structure, becomes a resonating body and creates a visual-tactile sound experience which varies as the audience member moves freely within it.

This project is kindly supported by the initiative neue musik e.V.
