Florentina Holzinger

Étude For Church

Berlin Atonal | Kraftwerk Berlin

Production Details / Press Releases

Since 2020, Florentina Holzinger and her team have organized musical activations – ‘études’- in public spaces. These Études have taken place in multi-storey car parks, on streets and in town squares; predominantly metropolitan spaces associated with accelerated transfer, urban crossings, and the motorized sphere. According to Frédéric Chopin, “an étude is a musical composition of considerable difficulty, designed to provide practice material for an instrument and its player.” A stunt is defined as an extreme form of physical activity that requires precise, technical training. In these Études, stunt effects meet the world of music to create scores for bodies as instruments. In Étude For Church, a two tonne iron bell is asked to ‘call in the canonical hours, summon tempests and awake the sleeping soul’.
