Original version for chamber ensemble

Program Note

on magnetic fields presents three separated sonic entities: what is thought of as two kinetic whirlwinds represented by the solo violinists, each oblivious to each other, and each moving through their own temporal evolution, and, at the centre of the stage, what is thought of as ‘a box of light’, formed by electronics triggered from one loud speaker.

Each violin begins at a very different state of evolution: the violin to the left beginning in a state of silver haze, and the violin to the right beginning from a state of grey matter, exposed and struggling to find enough electricity to bring its electric voice to life.

At the middle of the stage lies a loudspeaker, a contrasting sonic composite that can see both whirlwind ensembles at work. Thought of as a piercing, alien, light, the loudspeaker is a mysterious force that has the power to intervene in the unstoppable temporal processes of the violinists, both protecting and leading these parallel universes to moments of communication and realisation.
