Music Poetry Visuals
Agaya-Shi - The Third Half of the Last - Part I (2007) is a non-stop performance that keeps the listener from the beginning until the end in a sphere of sound and vision. The multimedia project is a fusion of acoustic instruments, electronic music, and visual art.
Modern classical viola and percussion, existing and own works, acoustic music, and live electronics, are combined with tapes and modern poetry, specially written for this project. The poems are recorded by the poet herself. The electronically modified voice forms a second layer to the music. In addition, there are projections on a big wall screen. A special computer program merges the projections, consisting of photographs, movies, and paintings, with the recorded poems. The same program transforms the live music from the viola and percussions into an electronic entity.
Agaya-Shi sounds like a story told to a listener but in a very unreal manner because the voice is modified and the sound of the music is vast. Sometimes floating and melodic, sometimes massive and insistent. Because of illumination effects and the moving pictures, Agaya-Shi becomes a vivid, lively, and stirring experience, wrapping the audience in a unique cocoon.
