(were the ruins still there) - Naomi Pinnock International Festival of Contemporary Music Warsaw Autumn

go to content

The signs of erosion and weathering in our inner and outer landscapes speak of our forgetting and of an absence.
Chords shifting.
The holes, the spaces that take hold in our memories. 
“...was the ruin still there where you hid as a child...”

Samuel Beckett, That Time 

Commissioned by Acht Brücken / Musik für Köln and the Podium Gegenwart of the German Music Council for the European Workshop of Contemporary Music.
