LUCIE VÍTKOVÁ (CZ) “Imprints of the Landscape”

"Imprints of the Landscape" is a new piece in which I am exploring the site of Harplinge Windmill. I am going to choose four different places with interesting and contrasting sound environments where I would like to record sound excerpts. Out of the recordings, I am going to write down four new scores (combining classical, graphic and text notations). Then, I will perform these compositions at the concert situation of the festival with accordion, harmonica, voice and tap shoes. That way, the outside sonic landscape will appear inside of the windmill, framed by my presence at those specific places, catching the moment and sharing it with the festival audiences.*

Lucie Vítková is a composer, improviser and performer (accordion, harmonica, voice and tap dance) from the Czech Republic, studying at the Universität der Künste Berlin with Marc Sabat. Her compositions focus on sonification (compositions based on abstract models derived from physical objects), while in her improvisation practice explores characteristics of discrete spaces through the interaction between sound and movement. In her recent work, she is interested in the musical legacy of Morse Code and the social-political aspects of music and art in relation to everyday life.
