April 28, 2024 – 13 Visions for Solo Violin

after Hildegard von Bingen and Pauline Oliveros

The “13 visions” project is the imaginary meeting between two composers whose musical aesthetics share many common traits, despite the centuries separating them: Hildegarde Von Bingen and Pauline Oliveros. Their respective visions are thus confronted in a cycle of thirteen pieces for solo violin. Somewhere between composition, arrangement and quotation, the starting point of this project is the text score “13 changes” by Pauline Oliveros: it consists of thirteen poetic instructions – inspired by earthly or cosmic events. The present project preserves the structure intended by Pauline Oliveros, while her instructions determine the sound universe of each piece through various playing techniques and preparations for the instrument. The songs of Hildegard Von Bingen appear “in shadow”: the violin, playing the role of the drone, proposes a sober harmonization of the chosen melodies.
