Paola Livorsi & Juho Laitinen

With Marek Pluciennik, Juan de Dios Magdaleno,
Viktor Toikkanen, Sampo Pyhälä

Imaginary Spaces, 2016/2020
In this performance, the composer Paola Livorsi has, together with Roberto Fusco, Juho Laitinen, and Marek Pluciennik, created a unique artwork that weaves together sound with the infinite parameters of space. Her practice is inspired by composing scores that challenge the traditions of playing music to a passive public. With Imaginary Spaces, Livorsi includes the audience in a sensorial journey that merges sound, image and technology. At the core of the performance is the cellist Juho Laitinen who is accompanied by Livorsi, Marek Pluciennik (processed live cinema) Juan
de Dios Magdaleno, Viktor Toikkanen (live electronics), Sampo Pyhälä (stage design); together they layer sounds of the cello with voice and imagery. With the addition of audience participation, the ensemble is made complete.
The pathway to the spaces of the imaginary is found in the moment the piece is performed; the score of the work will never be the same and is a unique experience each time it comes to life.

In the words of Simone Weil:
“I am other than I imagine to be (…)
To reduce oneself, to shrink to the point you fill in space and time…”

The work is part of Livorsi’s artistic research “Human Voice and Instrumental Voice: A Comparative Study in Timbral Content” realized at the Centre for Music and Technology, Sibelius Academy, Helsinki.
