Composition Commission issued to Yannis Kyriakides

consord, Münster, Germany

Yannis Kyriakides has been commissioned to write a new composition for consord. Forming the basis of the new work are short video sequences that Kyriakides recorded on the A10 in Amsterdam during the corona pandemic. “I’ve been going around the A10 in Amsterdam – it’s the main ring road that goes around Amsterdam. And making one-minute clips and superimposing them onto the map of the ring. Wanted to give some kind of feeling of the quietness and isolated feeling of this time.” These videos with their superimpositions serve the ensemble as a score for the interactive work. The ensemble is also working on a digital version of the composition that is being funded by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation.
