Notes

  • Program notes: 

    A simulacrum (from Latin: which means likeness, similarity) is a representation or imitation of a person or thing; copies that depict things that either had no original to begin with, or that no longer have an original. This piece largely deals with constant repetitions of ‘damaged’ materials and their potential expressiveness. The simulacrum is the content which affect or ‘modifies’ these repetitions; the system in which different relates to different by means of difference itself.
    border-states (time transformations):
    The piece ‘flirts’ with two types of time: the faster, highly figured material and; a ‘frozen’ sustained texture. These border-states also create a “macro-rhythm” within the piece. But qualitatively perceived states can overlap, rather than being organized into a distinct succession as concepts; creating a ‘confused multiplicity’.
