HIDDEN

HIDDEN

for string quartet and electronics


  • Instrumentation: string quartet and electronics
  • Edition: score and parts
  • Order No.: LS 5682-01

Description
HIDDEN is an attempt to get at what is hidden underneath expression or underneath music. It attempts to reach even further where there is a barely audible presence, which is on the edge of our perception. We do not know this presence, and it might be foreign, undecipherable. HIDDEN is a very slow moving 45 minute experience transforming the ear into an eye. The ear is given space and time to observe and orient itself in the unpredictable aural landscape. It is an underwarter, submerged landscape of rocks, inhabited by low vibrations which are felt rather than heard and with layers and layers of peeling away fog. Monolithic groups of sonic ‘rocks’ are seen/ heard from various angles. The piece is about observation; it tries to trace/ perceive/sense the emergence of expression. Chaya Czernowin
