KUNST: EIM

EIM ist ein konzeptuelles performatives Konzert, dass zum ersten Mal im ONO zu sehen sein wird. Es spielt mit Strukturen und Systemen und bricht mit traditionellen musikalischen Mustern. Fragmente und Details werden hervorgehoben, um ein Feld der Aufmerksamkeit aufzubauen.

Das Ganze ergibt etwas Neues. Dieser Prozess involviert die physische und emotionale Einbringung der Darsteller. Die Zuschauer werden in das Geschehen gezogen, sie werden zu einem fundamentalen und aktiven Element der Darstellung.

EIM ist eine Kollaboration von drei KünstlerInnen: Singer-Songwriter und Performer Ilmārs Šterns (Gesang), der Bildenden Künstlerin und Kunstkritikerin Elisabetta Cuccaro (Geige) und der Komponistin Maija Solovjova (Klavier). Sie bringen aus ihren individuellen Hintergründen ihre Stärken zusammen, teilen und verwandeln sie.

EIM is a concept performance-concert that will be shown for the first time at ONO Bern (CH). It plays with structures and systems, breaking more traditional musical patterns; indeed it prefers to extract fragments and details to build a different field of awareness. The whole created anew from this process deals with the performer physical and emotional engagement, that will involve and drag the audience into the experience, becoming a fundamental and active element of the performance.

EIM is a new creation of three extensive artists: singer-songwriter and performer Ilmārs Šterns, visual artist, art writer and violin performer Elisabetta Cuccaro, and composer and keyboardist Maija Solovjova join forces together, sharing and transforming their individual backgrounds.

Elisabetta Cuccaro (Milano, Italy) is a visual artist. She studied in Milano at Brera Academy of Fine Arts, then she moved to Switzerland, where she attended the Master in Contemporary Arts Practice at HKB, in Bern. Her work is usually based on the use of traditional techniques, like watercolor, drawing and engraving, that are the first element for a practice of reflection and meditation, reached through series and repetition. Even if her practice is mainly visual, it has a strong connection to music and writing, fields in which she is also active, as a violin player and a theoretical writer. Her last exhibition was in the collective Mind the Cap, held at the Centre Pasquart (Biel, 2017).

Ilmārs Šterns (Riga, Latvia) is a singer-songwriter, performer and singing teacher. He is now attending the master in Contemporary Arts Practice at the Hochschule der Künste Bern, together with a master in Audio-Visual Art in the Art Academy of Latvia. In 2014 he finished the Master of Contemporary music and singing teaching, at Riga Teacher Training and Educational Management Academy, in Latvia. He has been teaching in many schools, as the Ventspils College of Music, the Riga Teacher Training and Educational Management Academy and the Waldorfschool in Latvia. The list of events in which he participated is long, including many festivals, like Saulkrasti Jazz (Saulkrasti, LV), Shnit Festival (Bern, CH), Bone Festival (Bern, CH).

Maija Solovjova (Latvia)is a composer, piano and organ player and a teacher of theory of music. She has graduated from Jazeps Vitols Latvian Academy of Music (composition, MA) and works in Ventspils College of Music as well as in non-governmental organization “Jaunas Kulturas maja”. In 2013 was founded trio of contemporary music “Voice of Instruments” which is a kind of music art laboratory of singer Ilmārs Šterns, saxophone player Daiga Solovjova and keyboardist Maija Solovjova.
