Canto Ostinato

5. November 2016

Music and art in an endless loop: the art space hase29 becomes a permanent sound space for six hours. Unlike in a concert, visitors are invited to come in and out as they please. The audience can take a seat on chairs or relax on mats or in deck chairs. Or they contribute to the creation of a music-inspired, expansive web that is developed by the artists Marion Alfing and Eva Preckwinkel.

Together with the textile artist and lecturer in textile design at the University of Osnabrück, Marion Alfing, Has Eva Preckwinkel developed the concept for the room installation with a participatory character. Over the duration of the performance, a knitted fabric made of black yarn silently spreads out in the exhibition space. Visitors are invited to follow the processes and repetitions of the endless music together with the artists by connecting threads to a spatial line structure and thus giving the rhythm of the music a pictorial form. The unity of music and space becomes a living sculpture over time.
The minimalist composition by the Dutch composer Simeon ten Holt (Bergen / NL 1923-2012) is performed non-stop in this 6-hour music performance with alternating casts of six musicians on two grand pianos. Variable sections are lined up one after the other, partially overlapping each other and constantly creating new variations. The piece of music grows in an apparently endless development and surrounds the listener with recurring motifs.

A cooperation with the Institute for Music at the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences.

With the kind support of the Piano house Kemp.
