Programme: Though being best known as a poet Imants Ziedonis also wrote a prose
for children named “Colourful Tales”. Ziedonis’ prose, with its flowery and
imaginative language, was almost musical. With this in mind, a recording of
Ziedonis’ “Zaļā pasaka” (The Green Fairytale) was made with narration and musical
accompaniment by latvian composers: Selga Mence, Platons Buravickis, Anitra
Tumševica, Evija Vecumniece, Ieva Klingenberga, Laura Gustovska, Juta Bērziņa and Ēriks Ešenvlads / Valdis Butāns rendition.

My audiovisual composition Hic et nunc has 7 parts.
At its macro level, the seven parts reflect the spiritual transformation of humanity from current social distancing to social harmony.
Each part is like a musically theatrical sketch on an intellectual level, which together forms a cycle in which the views and religions of ancient civilizations interact with modern philosophy: anthropology, metaphysics, psychoacoustics, animism, physical phenomena and mathematical models, symbolism , non-traditional medicine, including phytotherapy, music therapy and art therapy, meditation, existentialism, psychology of perception.
This work is done in collaboration with musicians and artists from Latvia and Trieste.
