Music Pieces for Voice Piece for Bass, Tenor and Baritone (after Voice Piece for Soprano by Yoko Ono), 2016

The work is based on a re-interpretation and translation of the fluxus instruction Voice Piece for Soprano by Yoko Ono (1961), performed by male musicians in tribute to Yoko Ono and in reminiscence of her performances of the piece. The sound recordings of the performances are then translated into music sheets by the algorithm of a note recognition program, proposing slightly varying notations for each performed scream. The performers are then interpreting the music sheets on their instrument, extending their possibilities of the unplayable parts of the musical scores. The work will be accompagnied by an ongoing publication (2017/18).

Marc Philipp Gabriel (voice / flute), Juan PeƱalver Madrid (voice / piano), Mike Flemming (voice / viola), Michal Krajczok (voice)
