I’m extremely proud to present this video to you – thank you Ensemble Synaesthesis for the spellbinding performance!
Rugged wild landscapes with their hills and mountains read like music to me. The Icelandic use the work ‘fjallasyn’ to describe a distant view, especially in clear weather and from a point where you can see a big part of a highland area – a panorama with many peaks. (Thank you Örlygur!)
There are two IMAGIRO works as a result of my DAR Lithuania commission:
‘Imagiro Landmannalaugar’, which Youtube video you can watch here, is titled after the wide Icelandic mountainous scenic views, the fjallasyn, it was inspired by. It’s performed by its 24 metres long #panoramicscore. This work is like a roam through the wilderness. Première concert was in the Arts Printing House, Vilnius, on August 14.
‘Imagiro Largo‘ works the same, by graphic panoramic score, but also as traditional sheet music. Read more here. It would take an entire production team a week to set it up as a panoramic concert, as such it was premiered using the score. ‘Imagiro Largo’ is more akin to a landscape garden, planned and cultivated with mathematical precision.
