The piece will create a droney, timbre exploring sound with interweaving tones of four different parts. It’s open for the performers to explore and enjoy the sound. As a composer I enjoy exploring the big possibilities of small changes; like the wonderful microtonal world of slow and wide vibrato – and I hope the performers of this piece will enjoy this as well. Every performer will individually follow each their video, and the sound from the performer and video they followed is to be put on top of each other creating one, collective sound and video.
The work is for four+ instrumental performers where there should be at least four instruments with the possibility of vibrato, and at least two of them being bowed string instruments. Besides this, the work is open to be joined by any sound.
