Description:
The composition is based on the idea of tactile illusions, a phenomenon that affects the sense of touch. Because the string players do not use their bows during the piece, they are put in the unusual position of trying to find much closer forms of contact with their respective instruments using various scratching and rubbing objects. Producing sound in this way appeals not only to emotional or rational ways of perceiving sound for both the performers and the audience but also to the physiological aspect of it, as the tactile component of playing the instrument becomes more explicit both visually and aurally (thanks also to close amplification). The objects used in the piece include simple objects such as hair combs, chopsticks and pieces of styrofoam. However, the way in which they are used establishes a new context for the relationship between physical sensation, movement and sound, transporting the listeners to a special world of sound.
