The premiere of a new composition for marimba, audio-playback and video by the composer Monika Dalach and marimba player Ewelina Hajda Kobiety są | Women are, which was created as part of the Artistic Scholarship of the Mayor of Łódź, Hanna Zdanowska, will be held online on 20 December 2021 on Facebook, YouTube and Vimeo.
The project concerning perception of a woman’s life draws from the Women of the City of Łódź. Through various art mediums, the artists have created a real, unmanipulated statement about how women perceive themselves and the sourrounding world. More than 20 Łódź residents of all ages were invited to participate in the project: they shared their point of view and life experience, talking about feelings, perception of themselves and their bodies and about the life of women in Poland in the 21st century.
This new multimedia composition is characterized by the search for new sounds and acoustic possibilities of marimba. The acoustic material is extended by electronic and video layers and supplemented by body mapping.
The project is carried out as part of the Mayor of Łódź Artistic Scholarship 2021 and with the support of Adams Percussion.
