(re)- sets out a collection of musical cells, with which the musician interacts and chooses how to respond, building and retracting layers of sound.
The initial inspiration for the piece came from palimpsests; the the old technique of reusing manuscript paper, washing off old ink, to make way for new ink. Often the layers of old ink can be seen faintly through the material placed on top, and the technique, used several times develops a history which tells a unique and (re)written story.
(re)- was commissioned by gmem CNCM Marseille and was developed by Sarah Lianne Lewis (composer), Laurent Mariusse (marimba) and Pierre Fleurence (electronics) during a residency period in gmem CNCM Marseille in April 2019. The premiere performance was given by Laurent Mariusse on 15th May 2019 in gmem's Les Musiques festival.
