“Retweet K” (Ver. 2)
for piano, live electronics, fixed media and video
projection (8 ch audio surround)

A tweet is limited to 280 characters –
the most popular twitter account world wide is that of Katy Perry with currently
approx. 108 mio followers (2018). For me specially „Dark Horse“ was one of the most interesting and popular song to work about it – on a completely abstract level.
A ReTweet is primarily a forwarding of the content.
A ReTweet also shows that the tweet was read and noticed.
My short piece uses some forms and rules of these social media phenomena:
280 events in the piano score (single notes or chords) represents the main feature and the
motivic line – melodic and rhythmic structures are derived and varied from the song parts
and the basic tonality as a musical symbol. The spelled declamation of the name – Katy –
became a performative and interrupting spoken form element of the continuous sequence
of the piece. The video projection processes the most striking and intense colors and
movement patterns of the original music video of Katy Perry’s song. It takes over the
function of moving light reflections created with new recorded and manipulated film material.
