Beat Furrer — intorno al bianco
(c) Didi Sattmann

Time, stretched to the extreme – like after jumping off, so to speak –, slowly shifting harmonic constellations. Various patterns of movement, vibrato, modifications, regular and irregular pulsations keep arising from interferences created by the slow sounds in constant glissando. The clarinet, completely integrated into the sound of the strings, only gradually frees itself in a continuous accelerando until it finally contrasts the sound of the string quartet: The continuity of the processual transformation is ruptured. From the compression of time and the dissociation of the sound arise a series of interlocking language-like gestures. The sounds are dismantled into their individual components. (Beat Furrer, 2016)
