The Sound and the Body

An Essay on the Œuvre of Jagoda Szmytka

Monika Pasiecznik
In this overview of Jagoda Szmytka’s work, Monika Pasiecznik gives the first developed account of the young Polish-born, Germany-based composer: going through various individual pieces, including her opera for hands and voices, she exposes the various aesthetic and philosophic threads at work in the composer’s trajectory, emphasizing her engagement with sound as such as well as the body in performance.
