about

The sound of an old Russian tea kettle. "Invite Round For A Cup Of Tea" is also the basis of a performance piece that has been presented at " Sound + Image " (1999, Vilnius Contemporary Art Centre); at the exhibition entitled " Lithuanian Art 1989-1999" (1999, Vilnius Contemporary Art Centre ); and at avant garde music festival "Didelis pasaulis" (1999, Kaunas).
Published in phonography.org #5 www.phonography.org/comp05.htm (2003 usa).
The performance begins with filling and starting the tea kettle. When the water has boiled to make tea, then it is served to audience. Sounds of the tea kettle powerfully activate the stereo field of the microphone.The performance is special for the reason that it has all of the necessary musical composition elements: natural organic form, changing rhythm, great number of timbres always changing colors on various sound pitches and very expressive dynamics - from ppp till fff.


Perfomansas. Kvietimas arbatos
Imamas rusiškas elektrinis arbatinukas. Iki max ribos pripildomas šalto vandens. Iš skirtingų arbatinuko pusių pritvirtinami kontaktiniai mikrofonai ir įgarsinama stereo. Arbatinuko elektros laidas įjungiamas į tinklą ir apie 5- 8 minutes vyksta vandens užvirimo procesas. Arbatinuko skleidžiami garsai labai sustiprinami. Vanduo užverda . Paruošiama arbata . Žiūrovai vaišinami arbata .
Veiksmas gali būti fiksuojamas audio.
Veiksmas ypatingas tuo, kad turi visus reikiamus muzikinio kūrinio elementus : natūraliai organišką formą , besikaitaliojantį ritmą , daugybę tembrų pastoviai kintančių įvairiose garso aukščio tesitūrose ir ypatingai išraiškingą dinamiką – nuo ppp iki fff.
