Menu Close

Musique d'art (2019)

violin, viola, cello, double bass and processing — 50 minutes

The first step into the unknown is dissonance. Progress is energized by instability: each new step is proposed as the resolution of what came before. The final step into the unknown is silence.

This work will be the subject of an album on the Musikfabrik label in 2021. ​
