Notes

  • Program notes: 

    “To sojourn in just that other side, not to try to discern the invisible. that is the blind task of sleep.“ (Nancy, Tombe de Sommeil, 2007)

    Consider that life comprises an endless chain of decision makings, I believe consciousness is the worst thing to lose in daily life. It is however with the exception of a daily recurring task - sleep, which necessitates the contrary.

    This work intends to put into relief the act of musical expression through the biological situation of falling asleep. Informed by nature and evolution, the musical discourse establishes a stream of perceptual change as the aesthetic experience to be shared with the listeners.

    The title of the work is from a book of the same name by the French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy.
