OKNO is an intermedia series project by violinist and composer Khachatur Kanajan. The focus is on the interactions between the diverse sounds (piano, violin, 7-string electric violin, synths, percussion, field recordings) and the mostly black and gray graphics (Chinese ink, chalk, pigments) on paper. Kanajan developed a set of rules for drawing so that it can emerge as an unconscious process in connection with the music. Drawing thus becomes a musical instrument and follows the simplest compositional techniques such as imitation, counterpoint, unison, hoquetus, and so on. It is both a graphic score and a seismograph of sounds.
Transformers ( Kanajan-Kokhanov-Pschenitschnikova)
The experimental practice of the composer-performer trio »Transformers« (Khachatur Kanajan, Alexei Kokhanov, Natalia Pschenitschnikova) focuses on processes of sonic transformation. The aim is the interpretation and energetic change of sound and speech realities by means of rhythmized text collages, extended vocal and instrumental techniques as well as practices of situational composing. Elements of visual art, poetry and performance will be included, but the focus on sound as the main process will be explored. Classical acoustic instruments, electronics, sound objects and voices will be used. The first program - with texts by Franz Kafka and Lew Rubinstein - was performed in February 2024 in Panda Platforma (Berlin).
