Strahovnik, Petra: Attraction 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Attraction,
    this word, with so many meanings, got my attention many years ago, when for the first time, I used rare earth magnets to attract the strings and with that, changed the mechanism of the instruments.

    With this word, I connected to several theories and topics.
    One of them is questioning the origin of attraction.
    From the idea, to the written piece, to the performance and finally to the listener.

    What is the attraction’s material? Physical/biological, emotional, intellectual?

    The other, more important is the question of the freedom of thoughts.
    How, why, etc. for now is not important.
    What is, is to have blank piece of paper in front of you, every time before you enter this or any sound/art world.

  • Technical specs: 

    - glass of water (3x)
    - a bowl of water
    - half hollow sphere styrofoam (50cm)
    - magnet preparations (3x magnetic object)- more details in the score
    - different shape of magnets for piano- more details in the score

    If the concert hall is dry, the piece will need amplifications.
    *I am using magnets on string instruments and piano which are not used just as an effect, but in a way of separate "new" sound world. I made a research about this new preparation and made an object, which is safe and easy to use for musicians.
