 Aliona Yurtsevich
12 Color Sonnets


for Trio SCORDATURA  |  for voice, viola, piano/keyboard, electronics, light & video  |   2014

Dedicated to Bob Gilmore (1961-2015)

This digital only release – the first for Pogus – is in memory of our dear friend Bob Gilmore (1961-2015) - musicologist, microtonalist, author, teacher, musician, generous promoter of contemporary music, and a person with abundant curiosity and genuinely creative mind. The release compiles live recordings from concerts with Bob's last performances.

12 Color Sonnets is a multimedia work based on twelve original poems by Aliona Yurtsevich, dedicated to twelve individual colors, with the intention to explore correlation and musical property of non-musical media - light, color and word. It is a collection of audio-visual sensorial miniatures that blend and transform the modes of perception within the new emergent form.

Inspired by and written for Trio SCORDATURA (www.trioscordatura.com) featuring:
Alfrun Schmid: voice, reciting voice; Elisabeth Smalt: viola, reciting voice; Bob Gilmore: reciting voice, piano / keyboard, electronics


Composer Aliona Yurtsevich has firmly situated herself within the “interdisciplinary” field of music composition, in which music is an alchemical substance that perfectly melts and unifies all other art forms – of word, gesture, image, idea, technology – into a transcendent and satisfying whole, with music itself as a co-dependent member of a broader alliance. Hers is a world in which music continually engages other sense modalities, reaches beyond the purely aural domain and seduces us into multiple responses in body, mind and heart. Each new piece involves a rethinking of form, medium and material, the nature of the performing space, the status of the performer’s body and instrument, the extent of the bleed-through from music into visual or kinetic domains. As a composer Aliona Yurtsevich is developing her own unique style, exploring the traditional abilities of acoustic instruments with the emphasis on theatrical aspect of performance on stage, live electronics, sound spatialization and sound itself. Her work leans towards the experimental multidisciplinary sound-theater exploring musicality of the visual and the visuality of the musical performance. In her work she puts strong emphasis on researching the interrelation between different creative forms and languages in the musical context, where any additional media used are genetically embedded in the score from the start of the creation of the new work.
