‘Metamorphosis / A Report to an Academy,’ part V, an ongoing composition cycle RecomposingArt (2011– ) by composer Bojan Vuletic, takes inspiration from a combined text created in collaboration with author Uwe Schareck. The text rearranged materials from Franz Kafta’s novels ‘Metamorphosis’ and ‘A Report to an Academy’ which narrate the transformation from human to animal and vice versa. ‘Metamorphosis’ and ‘A Report to an Academy’ removes the text from its original context to create a new musical form. Vuletic’s composition, a large musical piece in which intelligence and civilization are expressed in high polyphony, whereas instinct and wildness are searched for in various parameters of improvisation.
