NEUES MUSEUM - CONCERT WITH KP WERANI
ONE MILLION - EDITION SOUNDVESSEL - ITEMS AND SPACES
Performance: January 15, 2023, 1 pm and 3 pm
Location: Neues Museum, Bodestraße 1, 10178 Berlin, Germany
In the ONE MILLION SOUNDVESSEL project, I work with a wide variety of music producers on sound pieces produced exclusively for this project. A QR code leading to a link is burned into a ONE MILLION porcelain vessel that I design together with the musicians. You scan these QR codes with your smartphone. Ideally, the pieces of music can be heard via earpods and headphones. The SOUNDVESSEL are everyday eating and drinking vessels. And they also function as an exclusive storage medium for special music.
The first ONE MILLION Edition SOUNDVESSEL was created with the musician and composer for NEW MUSIC KP WERANI from Munich. ITEMS, the piece of music he composed for SOUNDVESSEL, will be premiered on January 15, 2023 in the Neues Museum Berlin as part of the exhibition DER PORCELAIN CODE – ONE MILLION BY ULI AIGNER.
KP Werani played in the New Museum to "The Porcelain Code. One Million by Uli Aigner" a walking concert with the premiere of an electronic piece from sounds of the vessels by Uli Aigner and with his 3RÄUME for viola solo.
3SPACES for Viola solo is the formulation of three essentially different musical textures. In the composition most attention was given to the differentiation of the respective texture. For the continuous work that stretches over long distances (in time and place), KP Werani found inspiration in the work of two visual artists, Hanne Darboven and Uli Aigner. In their creations, he sees closeness to his personal need to excessively and consequently work with one single material until this process is completely exhausted.
