Lisa Streich: DAUMENKINO

DAUMENKINO is a series of designs by various prizewinners of the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation. I was looking for personal fingerprints to trace the individual personality and style of the prizewinners.

Anyone who watches the DAUMENKINO can take a brief look, a staccato look at the working and thinking worlds of the prizewinners. It offers an insight that is not normally available in the regular concert situation.

Christian Mason: in unknown elements… in endless transmutation… (2022–2023)

„Believe in unknown elements. Believe in endless transmutation, have a vision of fission. Even as the world fractures, believe in integrity at the Earth’s core, believe in the future.” (Nancy Campbell: Uneasy Pieces, Guillemot Press, 2022)

The original idea was to invite former winners of the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation to submit short audio fragments from which I would create a constantly changing collage, a kind of sound kaleidoscope, to celebrate the foundation’s 50th anniversary. Never before have I had to deal with so much material in such a short space of time, and yet each fragment seems to contain a world of possibilities, so I see the result as an instance of possibility rather than a fixed quantity.

Christian Mason
