I. Nah aus der Ferne
This work deals primarily with the dialectical relationships between such pairs of concepts: near/distant; instrument/electronic (human/machine); synchronic/anachronic and pitch/noise.
Then, the combination of all these relationships with the space itself, where the event occurs and it all melts down.
Time is free, but then it must be coordinated with the electronics… it is a caged freedom. A sort of a democratic representation.
The subdivision in two almost independent statements relates mostly with the re-contextualization of the material, searching for the balance of the uneven forces, although with obvious implications on the structure and form of the work.
And… in between… is something else.
