The film Lost in dimensions by pianist Róza Radnóti makes an attempt to find visually expressible events in music. It aims to give the audience an intense and complex experience by interpreting the second movement of the Piano Sonata in C major (KV 545) in an abstract, non-narrative way.

Piano Sonata in C major, KV 545

A film by
Róza Radnóti

Musical interpretation
Róza Radnóti

There are many examples in which a piece of music is used as a soundtrack. But there are only a few in which a piece of music functions as the basis of a film and the musical content and dramaturgy determine the visual plot. The visual interpretation should allow the audience to "see" the music, should immerse them in the inner universe and the hidden dimensions. The cinematic realization can be seen as a manifold understandable metaphor, which each individual can interpret differently according to his or her own life experience and personality

    find me! 

    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.

    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.
