boooooooooon (2016)

for chamber orchestra, electronics, video and six reflective vinyl boards

ca. 6 min

Commissioned by ensemble mise-en (USA)

Program Note

boooooooooon was commissioned by ensemble mise-en in 2015. The work explores the intimacy between the music and the audience by allocating reflective vinyl boards in front of each instrumentalist. When listening to live concert music in a Western context, it is rare for the audience to be self-aware of their postures, facial expressions and motions. boooooooooon establishes a mutual relationship between the instrumentalists and the audiences by reminding the audience of their presence in the space. The live abstract reflection of the audience is also a crucial component of the visual element of this work.
