String quartet No.1 (2010) | 11 minutes
Premiere 27 May 2010, Auditorio Nacional, Madrid
Diotima String Quartet
Music of bodies. Breaths, brushes, collisions.
The idea of the piece came to me during a silent choreography by Anne Teresa de Keersmaecker. When I saw the dancers performing, I imagined music that could give the illusion of movement, solely through the resulting noise.
String quartet becomes dance, bodies, movement. Noise aspiring to musical sense and poetry.
