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.

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.
