No, but I am looking forward to it.
I love that idea. I think it is very right to have audience feel the energy that circulates between the musicians. Feel the physical involvement of the playing. It creates a space where the emotions of the interpreters and the listeners can meet.
I think that the link between this tryptic and Wolfgang Rihm’s work belongs to Wolfgang Rihm. What I feel is that Beckman‘s work is about an “in between” two worlds. And by looking each of these worlds,- the world of beauty and the world of atrocity,- as closely as possible, until one sees nothing any more, a image that contains both can appear.
I would say that my work is more a questioning of how music takes place in the today world. How it can tell storys today, how it can surprise and move people. How during a performance, eyes can hear and ears can see. That’s why I open my projects to different artistic expression.
I don’t consider my self as a composer. I arrange some pieces for my own projects. I think I anlarge the repertoire by my search of different musical cultures, different ways music takes part in the history of human beeings, takes part in there fights and dreams.
I have never played with Franck Ollu but I heard him several times, he is a wonderful musician and I’m looking forward to meet him through Wolfgang Rihm’s piece and during your exiting Bridging Europe festival.
