1. Suzana Lascu – posedai tot felul de obiecte electrice.
So, I had an idea for the radio play. The inspiration is drawn from this poem: http://www.romanianvoice.com/
It’s an anxious text that’s been written by a Romanian postmodernist novelist (my personal favorite) who came quite close to winning the Nobel Prize in Literature during recent years. The importance of the poem is represented by the clash in the perception of a man upon a woman as a confusing entity encompassing a multitude of features and stereotypes, the reflex of the male gaze being that of adopting a simultaneously contemptuous and deifying attitude towards her contemporary authority. Dealing with a gender by then emancipated psychologically and competent technologically is the main theme here, backed up by a fascination with the subconscious of the subject matter. Furthermore, the title means “you were posessing all sorts of electrical objects”, which makes me feel it absolutely fits within the values of our feminist group of electronic musicians.
What I intend to do from here is to create a densely layered vocal piece that might remind listeners of Louis Andriessen’s “De Tijd”, in the sense of it being melodically indeterminate. This is a perfect opportunity to expand on my harmonic language and attempt to conjure such specific atmospheres of tension in my works. On a technical level, I’m very interested in using analog effects which I either own or that are available at WORM.
