“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” (George Bernard Shaw)
This piece tries to confront the singularity of an experience and the inability to share and communicate it. The music composed tries to function as a soundtrack of the subconscious, to imagine how these dark places could “sound”. The piece begins with an ungraspable musical experience and later, the “actor” on stage tries to communicate this experience but gradually, the communication and its means become blurred. The abstraction and generalization that are necessary for communication flatten the original experience, leading in the end to a binary, meaningless act of communication.
