Symphony in A major, KV 201

A film by
Sophie Thammer

Unbounded field deals with the transformation process of Mozart’s Symphony in A major (KV 201) into a gradually emerging abstract painting, realised in the form of an animated film. Moving graphic objects/traces are synaesthetically assigned to the parameters in the music in correspondence with agricultural processes and the resulting structuring and geometrisation of nature. Referring to the unstable character of music, that e.g. tones, motifs can always be rearranged in relation to the temporal dimension, the new, graphic “score” should also be able to reinvent, overlap and destroy itself again and again.

    Mozart had to deal with the problem of being an ordinary person and at the same time an extremely sensitive musician. Was it difficult to accept himself? Did he frighten himself when he realised his extraordinary talent? Was his humour helpful in accepting himself? In the search for answers to these questions, many themes can be discerned that can be symbolic and meaningful for any generation and at any time.

    Mozart in Nairobi 

    The Mozart in Nairobi project tells the story of imprisoned mothers and their left-behind children in Kenya in an essay film, creating a dialogue on several levels between different people and cultures, with W. A. Mozart's Sonata in E-flat Major (KV 282) as the fundamental element along which the film is told.

    Shift KV594 

    W. A. Mozart's composition Adagio in F minor (KV 594) for an organ work in a clock becomes a synesthetic experience, materially visible, audible and tangible. SHIFT KV594 performs this work on a digitally controlled Jacquard loom (Textiles Zentrum Haslach, 2023). Mozart's composition becomes a fabric.

    Mozart real time quintet 

    The project MOZART-REALTIME QUINTETT offers an audiovisual experience in which the music of W. A. Mozart is realized as a synesthetic, interactive visualization by means of computer-generated real-time graphics. With the aim of creating an active playful and at the same time creative access to the work of Mozart, Mozart's Clarinet Quintet (KV 581) was realized as an interactive fulldome environment. With the help of a touch interface, the visitors can intervene in the audiovisual composition and change it.
