metamorphosis makes use of two well known works for solo piano and solo clarinet, respectively Luciano Berio's Sequenza IV and Pierre Boulez's Domaines as a starting point to a metamorphosis of ideas and concepts, where the main exploration are the spatialization, physicality, visual space and interaction for, to and with the audience, where performers, technology and spectators/audience participate in the same immersive and interactive experience, all contributing and collaborating with chance and probabilities to the final result.
This concept combines Domaines and Sequenza IV with two creations by the performers inspired by the respective composition. After reading Ichiyanagi's and Mouri's and message the words physicality and materiality and the change in the artist and the musician, having them feed of each other, creating and building a performance, or more than a performance, a multi-sensorial experience, a highly interactive, audience engaging, participative and physically active, almost performance art piece that can summon and arouse on's creativity to a very high level.
