Hungarian composer Réka Csiszér’s new project, as VÍZ, “Veils”
film trilogy with filmmaker Radiana Basso
Csiszér’s statement on the Veils project:
VÍZ is my chamber of soul, an intimate space in which I explore my sense of self, my past experiences, and my perception of reality. It is a playground for solitary audio-visual experimentation, as well as a platform for collaboration with artists working in different fields, to challenge each other and expand our creative minds. VÍZ is a Hungarian word and means water. It reminds me of where I come from. Water is formless and shapeless. Quiet, violent, mysterious, and dangerous at the same time. You can float on water but also drown. Water has an infinite quality and infinity makes me feel safe. Using a Hungarian word as an alias also symbolizes my attempt to connect on a deeper level with my Transylvanian roots and ancestors.
My conceptual work Veils is an elegiac body horror soundtrack in seven stages, the soundtrack to my own personal nightmares and traumas, and a requiem for my father Imre. The record deals with death, grief, cultural heritage, and identity.
