commissioned by Disko 404 for Forum Stadtpark Graz, Opening: 1.11.2016 – 1.01.2017 (18:00 – 08:00 every day) supported by SKE Fonds Austria
Der Ausgang für das Material und die Form der Komposition ist die Faszination für die komplexen Strukturen der Schneeflocken, bzw. die Architektur von Schnee im großem und ganzen. Die Komposition “Snow falls” ist eine freie Interpretation der Schnee-­‐bildung. Die hohen kristallklaren Klänge, die entweder analog mit Field Recordings und Aufnahmen von Instrumenten wie Glockenspiel, Weingläser, Spieluhren, etc. oder digital und synthetisch prozessiert und erzeugt wurden, binden sich in verschiedenen Variationen zu Klangtrauben
zusammen. Sie kleben aufeinander, ballen sich zusammen und verdichten sich in die Klanggewächse, die somit zu einer Klangfläche, zu “Klangschnee” verwachsen. Darüber liegt beschwörender, sich wiederholender Gesang (“snow falls”), bis sich auch dieser zu einer Vokalise verdichtet und dadurch auflöst. Das Stück ruft nach den Schnee, wird quasi
zu einem Schneeflockentanz. Der Schnee soll fallen und den Klang der Installation dämpfen, bis sich diese im Schnee auflöst und verstummt.

NOSILA SEM TUJE OTROKE (OTHERS PEOPLE CHILDREN) (2016) – tape for a dance piece by Vita Osojnik, premiere: 20.10.2016 / SLO / Ljubljana / PTL / repetitions 21.10., 22.10., 3.11. & 4.11.
The body feels the need, the head doesn’t. I am an eternal observer, an observer of others in recreation and procreation. Maybe I don’t like transformation, maybe (my) mission lies elsewhere. I don’t feel the need to be a carrier, even though I do carry. I do not feel the need to carry, even though I do. When the period of complete nonsense arrives, I lift up and I carry. All my children. Is this carrying only a substitute for the lack of perception of biological realities? I am a woman, I am a human, I am me … My body, my thoughts, my voice. I came naked and I did not meet (you).”

FOYER 1.0 (2015) – ERNST, OSOJNIK, SCHELLANDER
The Composition premiered on 8.10.2015 in Festival Phonofemme in Foyer Berio Saal / Konzerthaus Vienna, thankfully supported by SKE-FONDS
The foyer is a passage. It’s a place between an outside world and a spectacel in a concert hall. People share there space and time before they become spectators of a show. The type and range of motion of this space is scanned by Katharina Ernst, Maja Osojnik and Matija Schellander. Using double bass, percussion and electronic sound created architectures, which are moved in different ways: with their own bodies. By electronic means. By the audience.
