Eliane Radigue – OCCAM I

for solo harp

A sound gently emerges and when its presence is felt another appears as if from nowhere. The two sounds crossfade into each other and as the two territories intermingle they produce a multiplicity of partials and sub-harmonics. The first sound then slowly disappears and thus the journey continues. Often one only becomes aware of a change after it has happened. Time has elongated and also compacted. The music exists in time yet it possesses numerous times all at once.

Serendipitously, our last day of work on OCCAM I fell on Eliane’s 79th birthday in January 2011.
