for (amplified) tanbur (2018)
There are two possible ways of reading the title:
– Showing the hidden: Bringing out the unheard potential; bringing into focus the margins, the other side, the hidden, the not obvious; revealing what has been kept secret until now; liberating what has been suppressed.
– hidden Showing: Not communicating it in a direct way; articulating it in a roundabout way; not expressing the actual; leaving the centre empty – and yet nothing remains unsaid.
First performance: 22.11.2018 | Sprengelmuseum Hannover | TRAIECT II – Iran | Mehdi Jalali (Tanbur)
Commissioned by the Hannoversche Gesellschaft für Neue Musik, supported by the German Music Council.
