Ether (or Something Similar)

Umbrella

Audio-visual performance for voice, ukulele, banjo, sound objects and video.

The work consists of some audio-visual interpretations of the ether. Ether as a gas, as a divinity, as a radiophonic space, as a bringer of light.
The live performance alternates four video-screenings accompanied by live musical/sound actions, with pieces taken from Stefano Giannotti’s repertoire, mainly focusing on the four elements, earth, air, water, fire. Among these, EARTH CARDS, RAIN CARDS, PRIME ALI – Four Moments in the Life of a Butterfly.
The piece has been commissioned by Lukas Simonis for the radio format Ether Snuiven, a periodic live event based in Stichting Worm in Rotterdam.

Dur. Between 40 minutes and 1 h.
