of pAraLlels, four sheng (2009)

On Chinese mouthorgans (Sheng) one often plays clusters (multiple frictional tones played on top of each other). Starting point for this work is to approach the cluster as a spatial configuration. Multiple tones that normally would be played simultaneously on 1 instrument, are now divided over a number of performers spatially positioned and moving throughout a space. Using distinct movements dispersed in time, different configurations are spatially addressed. So far, the piece has been performed only in China.
