“Quasi Rublev” (2006/07) is a 50-minute project created by three artists: Katarina Głowicka, Mathis Nitchke and Gośka Isphording. It was inspired by the films of Tarkovsky’s metaphorical long shots and slow transformation in which the spectator loses his sense of time. It was this particularity from the film “Andrei Rublev” which was the starting point for the project which consists of processed, dark sounds of the harpsichord with electronics and video projections. The project was developed with funding from the Performing Funds Netherland and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.

"What makes the music of Kasia Głowicka special? First of all space. Deep and extensive (…) Seasoned composer – the clear intentions and the feeling for ‘big form’."
