Work Overview

This piece was partly inspired by a review of the work of video artist Pipilotti Rist in the New Yorker on the 27th September 2010, where art critic Peter Schjeldahl wrote that "Her pop cultural affinities don't unite high and low so much as make them seem like interchangeable engines of pleasure."

I liked this description so much - and it chimed so well with the way I think about and work with music - it became a kind of manifesto for the piece, and prompted the title as I began to discuss with Nicole the themes of time passing in the Hourglass project.

My approach was playful and joyous, taking samples from recordings of Nicole playing the tárogató to make all of the sounds in the electronic part, and imagining Nicole dancing as she played the live part, lost in a state of 'flow'.
