On the occasion of its 15th anniversary, ensemble mosaik is developing a two-day concert project with the Brazilian 16mm film duo Distruktur and the director Thomas Fiedler. Titled perspective matters, works by six contemporary composers will be performed in an extensive installation. Thoughts on the psychology of perception are at the root of this project; a musician, film artist and director investigate and shape listening perspectives with artistic means. They will test the influence on listening habits; the possibilities inherent in different listening perspectives and situations in space will be sounded out and consciously applied.
The same way an audio guide leads visitors’ gazes through collections and to individual art objects in visual arts exhibitions, this two-day project will guide the public’s listening and focus on perspectives and possibilities. The auditory influence isn’t part of an educational objective; instead, the process of perception is the subject of artistic analysis. The audience experiences the variety of possible hearing experiences. Perspectives are simultaneously the issue and the central element for shaping both evenings.
