DIORAMATIZED #01 is the first of a series of experimental design explorations in the framework of the practice-based research project MULTIPLE voice/vision. It transposes the 19th century concept of the diorama to a contemporary interactive media formula in a miniature dramatized setting and will be presented the end of may 2010, as the result of a workingperiod in FLACC. I coined the word DIORAMATIZED because on the one hand it refers to the 19th century phenomenon of dioramas, and on the other hand it carries (some of) the meaning of the word ‘dramatized’.
The technical as well as the aesthetic approach of DIORAMATIZED #01 is a deconstruction of the multi-layered musical texture into its constituant parts, ‘rendering’ each individual layer with a limited perspective, both aurally and visually.
The picture below shows the 5 musicians – stills from testrecordings in februari:
no perspectival limitations in the images yet.
In fact DIORAMATIZED #01 thus will become a subversion of the traditional diorama concept, as it will also be a deconstruction of the use of the traditional single viewpoint of the 19th century diorama into a multiperspective experience that challenges the curiosity of the viewer/listener and invites him/her to explore these multiple perspectives.
