    About the piece "Blue" by Hana Ajiashvili

    The piece was inspired by Kandinsky's self titled painting.
    It's not my first piece written by visual art. Thanks to my interest to a dialogue between contemporary music and contemporary visual art I did my Phd by this interesting theme and also I have a course on the same theme " Sound, Light and Line" which I taught at the Rice University (USA) this spring semester.
    Before composing the piece I studied Kandinsky's theory about colors and about different geometrical forms and their relationships. All this helped me to find the idea of the piece. The central figure of the painting is a circle - one of the favorite Kandinsky's figure, which has different nuances of Blue and different shapes. The backstage of the circle is dark blue which gradually goes to black.
    In the right bottom of the painting there is a small red circle. By Kandinsky the colors blue and red have opposite characters, so the drama-conflict is inevitable. That's what this piece is about.

  • Technical specs: 

    piano + voice transformer for electronic effects ( in case if the piece is chosen for the festival, the composer will bring the transformer with her).
    piano accessories: ratchet, regular keys, bow hairs, 2 cardboards ( paper box cardbords)
