KURZSCHLUSS
The title “Kurzschluss” (short circuit) has inspired me for many reasons with several different meanings. Short circuit as disconnection from the power source. It can be seen as a short-term slowdown or complete cease of the movement. Short circuit as a false connection that produces spark and flashes, unexpected impulses. A short circuit as false connection can also occur when a faulty vinyl starts repeating the same musical material. In this case, there is a connection between two adjacent grooves. The short circuit as a metaphor (the shortness of the head, the cord running together) often occurs inside us and around us. Also in the process of creating a piece, I experience a number of major and minor short circuits – the intermittent flow of creative energy is common phenomenon.
