moved-by for violin solo by Clemens Gadenstätter published on 2020-03-03T18:48:02Z The movement oft he bow on the strings, the movement oft he right hand over the fingerboard – either soft, with very little pressure, fast or slow, or with heavy pressure, slow changes of positions, maybe very short strikes or beatings, tappings or ripping movement: all these differentiated movements are as well connected to sounds as to „Empfindungen“, sensations in our perception. Moved by turns this relation into the core or magnet oft he structure oft he music. We are moved-by the movements on the two layers of movements on the instrument via the specific sounds and contextualisations in which those sounds meet us as listeners with a broad individual and cultuural knowledge and preoccupation. Thus every movement – that means: sound – triggers a certain „Empfindung“ – means that the acoustic event is mapped on all our perceptive senses (high for the spacial sense, rough fort he tactile sense, sharp fort he gustative sense etc.) – i build a network or matrix of everyday events or experiences we might all have and share, or that we can imagine to have (thus as a whipping, ripping off something, smooth touches of something with the related sensations in f.e. the fingertips, …) which are all related to the movement of our hands, fingers – and thus also connected to our tactile sense of our skin (the skin as a central metapher of moved–by: the string and our Trommelfell work as types of skins that it triggered on by sensations as described) – and build from them this matrix that lies underneeth the whole piece. These movements are mapped on the instrument as idiomatic movements on the violin and sounds and structures of sounds emerge by this.
