Music for 'Flawless'

by Sebastian Laskowski



This is another dance piece, and it's the first one I created. I collaborated with Angelina Krahn in early October 2010, who told me what her concept was. The piece has three males and one female, who becomes infatuated - almost obsessed - with these male figures, who she views as perfect. Eventually, the audience realizes that it is her who has the flaws.

It was a challenge to come up with something that would resonate this particular idea well. Angelina told me she was looking for percussion, especially ones with Latin sounds to them. I decided to record congas, bongos and cymbals, and manipulate them in an electroacoustic fashion. There is also guitar and piano, which is also manipulated, to give a sense of tension and discomfort throughout the piece, which I thought should be conveyed.
