Sonority - Live @ Psy Kemp - Valeč 2021

ALBUM

Raw (Distinctive Records, UK)

The album began its life at our friend's beautiful cottage on the rock above Hracholusky Dam. We captured the atmosphere of its surroundings, recording nature’s sounds in the field… especially the ants, water, forest life... 

My personal approach to making music is to have the freedom without restrictions or constraints, hence the album title “Raw”. It means some kind of intractability and identity, something energetic, unbounded and not adult. 

In tribute to the inspirational storytelling and style changes, I tried to make “Raw” a “listen in one take” album. I find that it’s such a powerful experience to listen to the album as a story, from start to end without interruption. That said, many parts of “Raw” make me feel in an ecstatic melting mood. The ending of “Could Be Normal” is the peak moment of the album. Then “Going Home”, back to the one, to the all, like a last breath.

The album is fringed by spoken lines. They are not there just for aesthetic purposes and hippie intellectual pomp. They are part of my view on us and the world.

ONDINA

Music Composer & Sound Designer

Ondina: The Little Beloved Mermaid is an experimantal classic drama based on the dramatic play of Ondine by Jean Giradoux, a fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, collected Icelandic legends by Knud Rasmussen and others.

Just as the text refers to famous literary works, the music cites famous works with a similar theme, but at the same time it is a new authorial contribution by composer Sonority.

LUDWIG B.

Music Composer & Sound Designer

Personality and work of Ludwig van Beethoven, his creative motifs and backgrounds of his emotional life in an abstract way is a subject of this dance theater performance  by ProART Company.

Beethoven's last 10th violin sonata served as their musical basis. However, the Sonority transformed this into a completely contemporary sound. Beethoven's and Sonority's music becomes a kind of bridge between the past and the present.
