Description

A good glassblower can instinctively react to the liquidity of hot glass. He knows how to move in order to balance the semifluid material. To prevent the glass from dropping onto the floor he keeps a steady rotation on his pipe. In some way each piece he creates has its own rhythm, its own musicality.
This inspired Philipp Weber to investigate how music might influence glassblowing: What does it sound like when a musician is asked to step into a dialogue with a glassblower? On September 25, 2015 A Strange Symphony was performed live at the Nationaal Glasmuseum in Leerdam, in the Netherlands. Famous Dutch cellist Ernst Reijseger – who has also produced various movie soundtracks for the renowned director Werner Herzog – was invited to improvise with glassblowers Christophe Genard and Emil Kovac. In front of an audience of over one hundred people Reijseger’s music revealed the rhythm and the drama behind the traditional craft of blowing glass.

A series of objects created during the performance immortalize this dialogue between the arts.

Philipp Weber
‘Where lies the significance of craftsmanship today?’, ‘What is the meaning of the human relation to a material and its processing?’ or ‘What remains of a craft?’ are questions that guide my approach.
Philipp Weber (*1987 in Münster, Germany). In his work, he seeks to find emotional qualities within production processes. The mystery that lies in the craft of glass blowing or the alien work environment of a coal miner are topics which inspire him and feed his fascination. Weber believes that in an increasingly digitalized world the comprehension and appreciation for original relations of production processes are getting lost. By finding arcane values that reveal themselves in a new and different meaning he poses new prospects on craftsmanship or production process and their importance for our societies.
