MOSAIK - 41 statements about the Corona time
Is art silent in times of crisis? No!
The idea for MOSAIK came to us in summer 2020. We asked our friends around the world in the music scene and wanted to get a picture of the mood: How are you? How do you see the current situation? What is Corona doing with art?
In response to these questions, we asked for an artistic form - we wanted a statement in sheet music. 41 composers from ten countries answered us, got creative and wrote and given us a “vowel miniature” - their very personal perspectives on 2020. And we dealt with each of the many perspectives.
On an extensive, specially created website, Calmus will be presenting the large MOSAIC of these miniatures in virtual space from April 26, 2021. At www.calmus-mosaik.de you can not only listen to all 41 miniatures, some miniatures have already been published as videos. There is also extensive additional information on the composers and their intentions for each work.
The 41 works are by Harald Banter, Ludwig Böhme, Andrew Cusworth, Michael Denhoff, David Erler, Bernd Franke, Reiko Füting, Carsten Gerlitz, John Høybye, Fredo Jung, Vytautas Miškinis, Paul Moravec, the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet, Steffen Schleiermacher, Aristides Strongylis and David Timm and many more.
Thoughtful, encouraging, tragic, entertaining, funny, experimental, spherical, angry, ironic, jazzy, harmonious, spoken and sung, unexpected and much, much more is included.
We promise it will be more varied, more beautiful and more interesting than it actually was for many people.
