Far-Field (2019) 10 ‘
Première: Vincent van Amsterdam
16 June 2019, Cacaofabriek, Helmond (NL)
Commissioned by: Podium Windkracht
Pulsating, propelling and musing: due to a deliberate combination of interferences of tones, subtle microtonal effects and an unusual use of the accordion registers, Far-field sometimes reminds of electronic musicor a foggy natural landscape. Within that fascinating sound world, sometimes vague memories appear; short, melodic sentences that are not fully pronounced. The work is freely inspired by an abstract photograph that Bisschops made of rows of trees in the mist.
