Kirsten Stromberg

La Riva: along the fermata

Artist/Composer: Kirsten Stromberg
Performers: Francesco Toninelli, Renato Grieco, Francesco Pellegrino
An installation and performance of graphic scores inspired by the relational ecology of plants along the
banks of the Arno River in Florence. Working with drawings that trace the spaces and movements between
complex growth structures, they form the basis of graphic musical scores from which performers will activate.
The instruments include: wind, percussion, violencello and voice. Neither entirely classical structured
composition, nor entirely improvised, this project touches upon the relations between natural, interior and
social structures, as well as musical and visual translations, highlighting the interplay of human/plant
relationships, and pausing to listen to the music of an area of Florence that is often ignored.
