Notes on this piece

A musical performance has many underlying dimensions. Some result from physical phenomena, such as resonance, connected to the environment, the acoustic, the audience. Others deal with communication, gestures and signs, natural links between the performers and the audience, and between the performers themselves. These phenomena, gestures, respiration, breathings, resonances, additional noises, are a full part of the performance, and, consequently, of a musical work. They interact at various levels - physical, empathic, visuals. They can act as mutual links, as a way of communication, as signals; they can be controlled; they can escape any control.
