Program note (English): The title of the work has several meanings. To begin with, that ball of wool, the knot of wool. That arises after spinning and weaving, two important traditional hand activities which women have always done. By means of the texts by Ovidius and among other things the harpsichord these jobs are converted into sound and will regularly return. Thus we all are familiar with the knot. Which here symbolizes several hairstyles (appearances) and the female vanity of longing to create. The several (appearances) forms, among other things bringing forward through the usage of different text sources, sound at the same time which results in the piling up of messy tangles, in own her own hair but also with each other, with leads us to the English meaning of knot. All in all the need arises to make knots. Such as one saws off the branches of a knot-willow tree forming a bald knot, whereupon new flexible willow tree branches can grow, and those branches are moreover suitable for basket
weaving.... but that is possibly something for a piece in the future. - ASTRID KRUISSELBRINK
