Iva Bittová & Ensemble Musiques Nouvelles

Iva Bittová is een violiste en zangeres met een veelzijdig parcours. Zij brengt sinds vele jaren een eruptieve, lyrische en complexe muziek, die zich ergens stiueert tussen de landelijke traditie van haar afkomst, de vrije improvisaties van de experimentele scène en een rigoureuze schriftuur.

Na het componeren voor Bang on a Can All Stars en Solamente Naturali geeft Ars Musica haar nu carte blanche om met het Ensemble Musiques Nouvelles te werken.

“I have fascinated and inspired by Mary Shelley’s life story, not only as a woman and mother but also as a powerful creative personality. Her imaginative creations emphasise the theme of bringing forth an issue, a successor, a monster – all amidst the pangs of childbirth. Mary conceived of the idea of her first book on the short of a Swiss lake in the middle of the night: “when I placed my head on my midnight pillow” – and gave birth to herself as a writer!

Mary presents her monster with the same books that formed her own individuality in her youth. In this way, her creation become almost superhuman since it is capable of rational thought. The monster uses language also as a strategy in dialogues with its creator, it learns from reading, listens, but has no name, no family, accompanied only with one question: “Who am I?”
This is the question that resonates in the culmination of my composition. It should lead us to reflect on our own existence and lead us to a desire to create for a better and more beautiful life.” Iva Bittova (translated by Pavel Drabek)
