Harmonie 2020

HARMONIE may/june 2020

Diptych of music & film, with a poem.
Bass clarinetist Fie Schouten and composer Aspasia Nasopoulou have chosen two works; video artist Melanja Palitta made two films. In both the films and in the music, there is a search for inner harmony: portraying the contrast of the enclosed human being and the expressively flourishing nature outside. The two pieces of music are hung beside each other, like two paintings.

Idea & realisation Fie Schouten & Aspasia Nasopoulou
In cooperation with Melanja Palitta – cinematographer & editor
Piet Gerbrandy – writer, Arjan van Asselt – soundtechnician
Music: Monolog (1983) by Isang Yun; Straight – Bent (2016) by Aspasia Nasopoulou
