The score is about the difficulty to relate to the abstraction of the pandemic on a global scale on one side, and the falling in a period of torpor on a local and personal scale on the other side. It brings together statistics about the deaths due to the pandemic in Germany, and personal daily photos during the last four seasons. The piece can be played from 3 to 13 musicians. Each musician chooses a line. Where there is light (white grain), there is sound. It can mean volume or intensity, depending on the instrument. The ellipses are total silences and have a connection with the amount of deaths in Germany. The photos and the seasons are like a narrative frame to the composition. In this frame one comes back to very basic transcriptions of sensations: where you have light, you have sound.
It transcripts for me this feeling of torpor, uncertainty, to go everyday step by step.
The composition is based on the statistics of the Robert Koch Institute in Germany.
