TAMARA SOLDAN, voice / medieval fiddle / live electronics
While the World is undergoing a rapid and radical transformation, we feel oppressed and inert in the face of events. Our voice is blocked, unexpressed, unheard, lonely.
The project Re-Flexions wants to be a mirror of the present, a reflection on a world undergoing a fast and radical transformation and at the same time a deep inner journey to free, perhaps, a new identity.
Ancient melodies deconstructed and recomposed in a new form like an inner voice that breaks free and seeks a new identity, attempting to recompose the ruins of the World.
Voice, medieval Fiddle, Ancient melodic evocations superimposed on contemporary sound materials, nature and urban sounds, poetry and improvisation.
The language used is Latin, as a universal language, and other languages such as German and Veneto dialect (Tamara Soldan’s acquired language and mother tongue respectively) extrapolated from compositions by the poet Andrea Zanzotto, a cosmopolitan figure, a critic against the anthropocentalised world.
The drums become the white noise underneath our everyday life, the harmonic dissonances, the fears that manifest themselves in violent events and social aggression, the microtones the sense of indefiniteness and suspension, the ancient and improvised melodies, an inner, meditative reflection, the texts by the poet Andrea Zanzotto the connection with the identity land and the mother tongue, the absence of a defined rhythmic pulsation, the freedom from matter.
A personal and shared journey, guided by sounds and images that encourage a moment of reflection, of absorbed experience and the possibility of re-imagining it.
Note: the music of Re-flexions may be accompanied by artistic videos created by artist Mauro Lovisetto.
Re-Flexions is a musical work supported by Musikfonds Germany.
