resilience

 

 

Instrumentation: contrabassoon, tenor saxophone, percussion, viola

Durata: 7’

Premiere: October 11th, 2008 at Moderna Muséet, Stockholm by KammarensembleN

Commission: KammarensembleN with support from Kulturrådet

Program note: 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.

resilience can also be performed without the film.
