In 1969 and 1970, Mauricio Kagel “made” two instrumental theatre pieces, Unter Strom and Tactil, for experimental sound producers. Since a fully encoded and composer-authorized score is lacking, the historical performers have been the only ones to play and record these compositions. The only adequate possibility to perform these pieces anew is through reconstruction of the original performance practice and the making of a score.
This research project critically and creatively investigates musical notation both as an extension of music aimed at performers and as a medium which reaches beyond or enlarges music‘s context, seeking to define new ways of thinking what music can become through innovative approaches to notation.
This critical edition constitutes the first edition of …..sofferte onde serene… based upon archival and analytical research.
The research is centred on the development of a systematically atonal, dissonant, and amotivic serial composition technique. In this context, the concepts of tonality, consonance, and melodic motif have to be rethought. This leads to the development of new aesthetic ideas and their implementation in the composition of new pieces.
