Christina Kubisch, It’s so touchy, 1975
In It’s so touchy, Christina Kubisch plays a flute fitted with contact microphones while wearing thimbles on her fingers. The thimbles create rhythmic sounds that contrast with the conventional tone of the instrument. The film is part of the Emergency Solos series, which she created in 1975 in Milan after finishing flute studies. With a touch of irony, It’s so touchy plays on the cliché of new music and the interpretive role of women.
