Lautaro Hochman - Notes
Nominee AHK Eindwerkprijs 2021: Lautaro Hochman
Graduation project: Notes
Medium: Music pieces, performed by Siebren Smink, David Ko, Jacob Lekkerkerker, Lautaro Hochman
Lautaro Hochman, graduate in Composition (BA) at Conservatorium van Amsterdam, AHK / Amsterdam University of the Arts.
Hochman's graduation project Notes is a collection of six musical miniatures for plucked instruments played in a vacuum environment. This music piece was composed during lockdown, when Lautaro's way to connect to the world outside of his room was through the digital realm. Overwhelmed by the stimuli that seem to be the aim of the providers of so called social media, his piece aims to bring intimacy and closeness in a digital environment through the use of counterpoint and music production. This collection is composed and performed between the 8th of October of 2020 and the 5 of March of 2021.
This “eindwerk” or graduation project was one of eleven graduation projects nominated for the AHK Eindwerkprijs 2021, the Graduation Award of the Amsterdam University of the Arts.
On February 10th 2022 AHK / Amsterdam University of the Arts will announce the winners of the AHK Eindwerkprijs 2021: the awards for a master and a bachelor graduation project, and the AHK Graduation Audience Award 2021.
