JI EUN MOON
Ji Eun Moon used the sound environment which arises between the creators, between planned music composition and authorial performance, as field of her own dialog with local musicians. Direct creative exchange of participants is one of the basic purposes for artists’ to travel, they often live as the nomads and move around the world not only with help of social network and the internet, but and primarily to move with the help of their bodies, which still extremely and fruitfully echoes in the works of artists who are travellers as the quality and the sincerity of the artistic surrounding scene, that is open enough to such cooperation. The latter is realized with concrete exchange in the process of sharing artistic procedures, visions and activeness. The artist planned the multilayered musical-performative event on the Mali oder in Narodni dom Maribor, as a union of silent film projection accompanied by upright piano in the first part of the evening and the concert of four musicians in the second part: next to Ji Eun Moon (upright piano) Urška Gajšt (vocal), Andrej Hrvatin (drums), Žiga Golob (contrabass). The author’s composition allowed other participating musicians a space for improvisation. Dynamic sound happening followed author’s instructions and the structure of the composition. Illumination emphasized the physical gestures of the performers and expanded the hearing experience between the synchronization and fragmentarily of music happening. Hearing landscape build on an intensive listening was torn between uniqueness of diverse musical characters.
