2017

...the skies would be frozen, if they were not hi-cut filtered

for double bass and electronics

6' 00"

Once upon a time the harmonies of the winter used to "tremble from cold in the icy snow"*… In Kraków, Poland, 2017, those faded away and the smog completely darkened the sky. Frosted harmonics of the vivaldian instrument, artificially modified by the electronics, touch upon the aesthetics of the altered winter. Smog, which had already covered the city, now settles down slowly on the anti-pollution masks of the passersby, on their smartphones with the anti-smog apps and on the four strings of the double bass…
