contemporary music travels

 The Score of Influence itself is strongly influenced by travelling : around the world (and NRW) into contemporary music archives   ... and of course: in between its 7 elements (Instagram accounts) that store my compositions is the newest and most personal one, showing impressions of my past, present and future voyages (also including selfies). On each post you can hear masterpieces of 20th/21th century contemporary music (out of the Instagram music library - tracklist so far below).

Feel free to influence me back by sending recommendations (music - or travel destinations).    music: Klavierstück 8 - Johannes Winkler | Piano: Juan Carlos Maskerados - post music tracklist - so far: Dmaathen - Iannis Xenakis Rainforest IV - David Tudor Mach - Eres Holz / D.

In August '23 we started to live stream the performances on Instagram:   Piano/Bike: Juan Carlos Maskerados | Composition: Johannes Winkler | Partner: Wind.Musik           [edit] Meanwhile, on soundcloud, you also find stretched versions of: Antenne II - (original piano piece on #199 / slide 1) Six Paradox Mantras - Nr. 3 - (original piece on #40 / slide 4)  Klavierstück 8 - (original piece on #200 / slide 2)  

about the Score of Influence

    Welcome to the Johannes Winkler Blog. I'm a contemporary music composer and media artist based in Essen Germany. The Score of Influence is an interactive 3D sculpture , that shows an overview of the creative processes in my transmedial slide compositions total artwork. Since 2017, it has been continuously updated, documenting the current aesthetic, philosophical and technical influences between the shown subprojects: On 7 Instagram accounts, I've been composing hundreds of 'narrative miniatures' as posts (my music, animations, images, texts and didactic works), that are interacting inside and outside its social-media bubbles.    Instead of influencing followers, the primary goal is to influence the creation itself - using Instagram as a kind of dynamic oeuvre repository.
