Apparitions, (after víziók)

Inspired by a lost music score of György Ligeti, the work Apparitions tends to
create a dialogue between a swarm of tiny fruit flies and Ligeti's micropolyphonic
compositions. Raised and nourished within food-colored apples in glass cylinders,
the fruit flies are moving on stencils placed on the printed music sheets, leaving
their colored secretions, thousands of tiny points, before flying away. The original
study score of "Apparitions" is based on a pocket edition in which the size of the
noteheads corresponds to the points of the flies, adding geometric visual sound
clusters and textures to the musical notes of the original composition.

Ligeti's "Apparitions" was written in reminiscence of his lost score calledViziók,
based on Ligetis' very first vision of moving micropolyphonic sound masses and

each 14 x 29,7 and 16 x 29,7 cm
