Programme Notes / Performance Details :

Digital delay (echo) produces reflections of sound like a mirror produces reflections of light. Sound of marimba reminded me of something empty: marimba actually uses a physical emptiness for the acoustic resonance. I thought about how emptiness can produce some illusion of fullness just through numerous reflections of itself. In the same way some of our empty thoughts growing by external reflections and repetitions may produce an empty reality.
