The Universe of Lella

Speech of Avenice, music theatre for voice, blockflutes, live electronics and lights

“Avenice is one of the characters from the universe of pieces titled “Lella”. The story, is about the future utopic society, in which everything is directly interpreted as the artistic manifestation. The story is a base for the whole project in which every artistic piece can exist separately, but also is a part of the bigger structure titled “Lella” (in sanscrit it means a way of describing all reality, including the cosmos, as the outcome of the creative play). All melodies used in “Speech of Avenice” belongs to the character of Avenice and have their corresponding melodies in the piano piece with the same title. Avenice is the character who is curious and adventurous. She’s creating the artistic atmosphere around herself. She’s intuitive and it seems that when everybody is trying to achieve a certain level of artistic fulfillment, she doesn’t care, because she is just playing the game. The piece is a conversation between Avenice and a symbolic Source of the Answers (blockflutes) with the live electronics background of An Infinite Echo, which with time also starts to participate in the conversation.

 

“Lella”, 7 preludes for piano attaca

superformulas (melodic source) for the project with the same title.

“Lella” in sanscrit means the way of describing all reality, including the cosmos, as the outcome of the creative play. Preludes are the core work for the whole universe of compositions connected to the fictional world of the future utopian society in which everything is directly interpreted as the artistic manifestation. Superformulas are like the spine of the body and at the same time they exists as a separate piano piece. Other compositions from the project (for ex. “Speech of Avenice” premiered in Splendor, Amsterdam in December 2016) use melodies attached to the characters of the dramatic story happening between the works of the universe.
