ABOUT: the piece was composed for KammarensembleN’s Sonoscope project for the 50 years anniversary celebrations of Moderna Muséet. For this occasion resilience was composed to be performed with the short film ”Bits” from 1976 by Gary Hill. The visual progression in this work has been the founding ideas for the music. Resilient camera movements and shivering stillnesses, contrasting materials merging slowly into one another or changing rapidly with sudden cuts. The piece can also be performed without the film.
