Clouds fascinate. In ever-changing ways, they find new and ephemeral forms - moments and events that are unique. The Filmpoem Transformation is about a 100% chance of rainfall, heavenly plays and their reflections in the water and additionally about transformation and imagination.
Telemach Wiesinger:
"Lastly, Alexander Grebschenko designed the soundtrack of Kaleidoscope with his composition of preselected pieces of music first and foremost serving the pictures. To continue our collaboration, we decided for a return - you scratched my back and I’ll scratch yours: the picture now has to follow his composition.
Actually his film music piece, which was originally composed for the classical avant-garde film Regen (1929) forms the basis.
The exciting question: How does the music interact with new images, other lenghts of sequences and a different mind? How would a contemporary interplay of sound and image work out? "
Alexander Grebtschenko:
"The collaboration for Transformation and the approach for Transformation/ Version 1 was extremely challenging because my composition refers concretly (and also very specifically) to Joris Ivens' Regen, written for flute, clarinet, violin, viola and violoncello on the occasion of the opening of the Studio für Filmmusik of the Musikhochschule Freiburg (2012). Difficulties arose because it is not simply composed as a "mood“ or a stand-alone piece.
The nature of this unconventional task is at the same time an essential part of the concept. The idea is to start a kind of zig-zag process: the new image is interpreted musically, again reacts to the new soundtrack - and so on!
It is also charming to play with the idea of simultaneously performing Ivens' Regen and Wiesinger's Transformation..."
