Anestis Logothetis

Anestis Logothetis was born in Burgas, Bulgaria, in 1921. He studied art and music in Vienna, where he now lives. One aspect of his artistic talent is expressed in his graphic notations in which he has developed a personal system of musical symbols. They present the interpreter with a clear and directly understandable sound picture. This kind of notation is also comprehensible to the layman as Logothetis' scores make visual sense even if the viewer has no musical training. Culmination is not instrumented. The material is distributed among the players; each of them then interprets the picture on each page of the score with his own instrument. Logothetis writes in this connection: The choice of instruments is unlimited, so that new sources of sound can constantly develop, as can new ideas, in contrast to traditional sources of sound. This means that to the extent to which an ensemble mobilizes all its individual and collective means in order to perform the work it also at the same time reproduces its own unique conception, its own collective personality.
