Hyperion - Higher States, Part 2

 

Longing for a perfect world, Hölderlin’s early romantic figure of Hyperion oscillates between manic-depressive and hallucinatory, euphoric states. His attempts to unite art, nature, love and revolution in harmony fail. Exhausted, Hyperion withdraws to a Greek island, where he devotes himself to writing letters.

 

Together with Ensemble Modern, we created a complex spatial sound composition. Inspired by the epistolary novel, Music and Sound-Recordings and Playbacks merged into a constant musical dialogue between past, present and future. Addressing the elliptic form and the time-offset between writing and receiving the letters, which the Hölderlin’s Novel consists of, musical phrases were recorded live and played back in a circulating and ever fading „memory sphere“.
