Apparitions (after víziók)

study score music sheet, traces of Drosophila, each 22 x 12 cm, 2015-18

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 within food-colored apples, the insects left tiny colored points through stencils on the study score, thus marking their territory before flying away. The original study score of „Apparitions“ is based on a pocket edition in which the size of the notes corresponds to the traces the insects left behind, adding visual sound clusters to the musical notes of the original composition.
