for two amplified soprano saxophones, eye-blink sensors, video and electronic sounds
premiered by eventuell. (Vera Wahl & Manuela Villiger) on September 5th, 2019 in Zürich
augenBlick for two saxophonists with eye sensors was created as part of the project „eventuell. human“. The idea of the piece is to focus on the intimacy of direct eye contact and looking – but in a confused game between virtuality and reality. Projections with oversized video recordings of the eyes are controlled live by eye sensors and imitate the closing of the performers‘ eyes. Gradually, the very limited musical and visual material undergoes a metamorphosis and culminates in the displacement of the virtual and real eyes.
