RiverBed : for flute, guitar, harp and violin / Dominik Karski

Library shelf no. Q 785.4414/KAR 2 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

RiverBed is the path that the sounds carve out across time, through a continuous interactivity that has not been pre-determined, and is not driven towards any final aim; rather, the process that the sound-elements establish is an articulation of an energy, as the behavior of the sound is quasi-biological in its nature: unpredictable, yet absolutely consistent. In essence, it is music that is not in any form, but is a FORMATION unfolding in time, in order to reach its own limit.
