Description:
Meccanica is inspired by both the kinetic sculptures of Jean Tinguely as the 'Strandbeesten' by Dutch artist Theo Jansen. The piccolo and the piano are intertwined in a musical game of transferring 'musical kinetic' energy, from 'linear' to 'circular' rhythmic and melodic movements. But, just as the sculptures by Theo Jansen, never in a direct straight line. The piece sometimes stops, turns and feels clunky. Both the piccolo and piano can sometimes sound as one instrument in unison or can sound like two or even more separate instruments using different colours and playing techniques in counterpoint. The poetry is found between the 'mechanics' of the piece, when linear and circular movements together suddenly sound strikingly emotional.
