For 6 Nail Violins
by Maya Verlaak


This piece was first performed within a performance at the Rijksmuseum for the Holland Festival in June 2015. It was part of several pieces composed and performed by the Khz Collective (under Yannis Kyriakides).
Because of the terrible acoustics at this performance I decided to perform it again in the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague, also in June 2015.

For the second performance I changed one element. I created an audio fixed media to be played back while we perform. It was made with recordings I've done with all the 6 Nail violins. The piece is 6 minutes long and so I streched the recordings to 6 minutes, like this the low pitch relation is caused by the lenght of the piece.
