Broken Land

„Works by a Tibetan yogi inspired Philip Glass (US) to compose his Songs of Milarepa. A version for piano and baritone will open the evening’s musical proceedings in the Brucknerhaus.“ AEC Site

For the work “Songs of Milarepa”, composed by Philip Glass, we developed a sound visualisation called “Broken Land”, that creates a virtual, three-dimensional scenery, reacting to sound in real-time. Continuing and extending former projects, Broken Land aims at extending the pure, abstract play of forms and colors, constructing connections between abstract and figurative aesthetics. The work presents a landscape in constant flux, in a way an ‘other space’ which is full of motion but at the same time transmitting familiar, intimate spatial structures to the spectator.
