ABOUT

BODY MAPS is a personal portrait exploring the plurality of certain human experiences, highlighting our strengths and vulnerabilities, particularly those of our own bodies. The work is a collaboration with visual artist Erika Harrsch, and maps the body by the songs, myths, and traditions that define us.

 

The piece explores the range of both the cello and the human voice (itself a body part), structurally balanced by both a choir of voices and a choir of cellos. Though essentially a duo, the layering and counterpoint represent the complexity and scope of the theme.

The stories are based on several found tales and archetypal descriptions: feet, tired from journeys, a blind canary (depicted with an eye in its beak), the human hand, with its power totouch and heal, within its palm a visual synthesis of the human experience the arm, a metaphoric butterfly wing,

allowing the imagination to escape

Radiant... Amorously evocative.

"[Paola Prestini’s] work is sensual and

heartfelt, touching upon minimalism, film soundtracks, and the American

avant-garde tradition."

-Tzadik Records
