Sheet Music: Score
Re-echo : for vibraphone + cello / Katy Abbott.
by Katy Abbott (2015)
This work is a re-imagining of another work The Empty Quarter by Katy Abbott. It is a region in Saudi Arabia (that borders the UAE where she was living at the time). Although elements of the work hint at the desolate isolated geographical area, (which incidentally inhabits some of the worlds most formidable sand-dunes), it also contains other, emotionally 'empty' aspects, such as separation from country and family/friends.
'It was very still, with the silence which we have driven from our world', - French Philosopher Wilfred Thesiger, on his journey through The Empty Quarter, the largest desert on earth.
