Notes

  • Program notes: 

    In the universe everyth ng is a circle (2020–21) draws inspiration from the novel by Sawako Nakayasu Settle Her. Nakayasu’s novel is written on a bus during one day, the thanksgiving, when she wanted to protest the meaningless festivities by sitting on a local bus circling the same route the whole day. Fragments of Nakayasu’s text are woven into the contrabass clarinet textures. Occasionally the vocal qualities of the instrument as well as the electronics push towards the foreground. The piece is a journey in circles towards the stillness of the center.

    I th nk about all the occasions when people refuse or decline knowledge I c n count the prom nent inc dences of the on m two hands and usually there is som th ng I c n say about those moments when people say don’t tell m I don’t want to know.
    Sawako Nakayasu
