Notes on this piece
Add to a playlist
Hólos (Ancient Greek ὅλος) is open to multiple interpretations. It refers to the presence and interdependence of all the parts as a “Whole” (a total), transcending the mere sum of all the parts. Hólos may refer to the “body in its entirety” as well as the “Altogether” working as a system - here the Whole.  In sacred writings, Hólos may also describe the “wholeness” or the “to be made whole”, i.e. the actions of restoration and healing.

Inspired by these interpretations, the piece explores the energy of “Souffle” (air and movement) as a means to work on texture. “Souffle” is developed as a complex physical and acoustic phenomenon, of which every single aspect and part has an impact on the sound. Beyond its exploration as a “multiple timbre”, "Souffle" is also developed as a movement and force.

Throughout the piece, "Souffle-created" and related phenomena (such as sympathetic vibration) transform the sound and texture. Key Sections include controlled-desynchronisation and guided-improvisation to generate ever-changing mixes of air, sound and vibration. Using spacialization, these phenomena are enhanced through changes in the position of the musicians during the performance.

“Souffle” ultimately becomes a hybrid material, as the human and instrumental breaths merge and become an indistinguishable, vanishing element.
