Fit into the crowd

BACK TO LISTING

Concert

Piece for bass clarinet, computer and reactive video.

9 min. 20

bass clarinet : Krista Martynes

music and image : Julien-Robert

Finding a musical juxtaposition between trying to create security and finding one’s place, Fit into the crowd is based on a visual image of a character trying to musically find that place while keeping the urban security around them, with a tape part of different phrases commonly said for the sake of security like: I shouldn’t step to far out of place; It’s better to not take risks; Art beware, everything has been done.

This piece is the first part of the triptyque Fit in the crowd. The second part is Refuge. The third part is Fit in the glitch.

This piece has been played in many concerts and festivals by Krista Martynes. She premiered the piece in the show Dix proportionnées in 2010. Since, she performed it during an american tour at the Spark festival (Minneapolis), Open sound (Boston), The tank (NYC), Hillyer Art space (Washington DC). She also performed it at the SOUNDplay festival of Toronto and Hamilton, the Remusica festival in Kosovo, Studio 300 festival (US), Understanding visual music, Montreal Contemporary Music Lab 2012, ICMC 2013 in Perth in Australia and at the concert Pixels et Décibels of Codes d’accès.
