“Narratives” is a series of music text films that centre on the experience of music mediated through animated text. Kyriakides has developed this form over the years, encompassing about 15 works ranging from orchestral, chamber, to electronic music. In the next year Unsounds will publish the whole collection in a series of DVDs. The first edition: “Dreams”, collects the large scale ensemble works - “Dreams of the Blind”, “The Arrest” and “Subliminal: The Lucretian Picnic” performed by Ensemble MAE and ASKO Ensemble.
The DVD is in PAL format and also contains the films in computer and mobile device formats, as well as mp3 Audio, and pdfs of the scores.
“Dreams of the Blind” recently received the Dutch Willem Pijper Prize for musical innovation.
