Jaanus Siniväli: Metaphysical Study Ib (2017)

Performative concept by Jimmy Offesson (Kungl. Konsthögskolan)in collaboration with Emelie Markgren (Kungl. Konsthögskolan) and Thomaz Persson.

Metaphysical Study Ib is a game piece with emphasis on free improvisation. It is based on a text excerpt from Soren Kierkegaard’s The Sickness Unto Death which describes the metaphysical construction of human being. The piece is bringing the described system into sound by introducing contrasting musical elements by two players and setting a third player in the borders of previously presented material. The same principle could also be transferred to technical solution or performative aspects, thus establishing a game piece with infinite possibilities.

Text (S.Kierkegaard's The Sickness Unto Death):

A human being is spirit. But what is spirit? Spirit is the self. But what is the self? The self is a relation that relates itself to itself or is the relation's relating itself to itself in the relation; the self is not the relation but is the relation's relating itself to itself. A human being is a synthesis of the infinite and the finite, of the temporal and eternal, of freedom and necessity, in a short, a synthesis. A synthesis is a relation between two. Considered in this way, a human being is not a self.

In the relation between two, the relation is the third as a negative unity, and the two relate to the relation and in the relation to the relation; thus under the qualification of the psychical the relation between the psychical and physical is a relation. If, however, the relation relates itself to itself, this relation is the positive third, and this is the self.

Such a relation that relates itself to itself, a self, must either have established itself or have been established by another.

If the relation that relates itself to itself has been established by another, then the relation is indeed the third, but this relation, the third, is yet again a relation and relates itself to that which established the entire relation.

Pedestrian: Romina S. Romay

På vår gata i stan is a piece for four instruments and one pedestrian. It is an open score which is made as a map over a part of Stockholm. The pedestrian has a gps with him/her and he/she works as a conductor for the piece and shows the players what to play through walking on the streets in the map. Since the pedestrian can walk on any street in the map in either direction the piece will most likely never be the same.
