the intimacy of strangers explores the relationship between sound and physical embodiment, the space it occupies, its tactility and fragility. The piece is a close navigation of human connection within oneself, during a time of distance and displacement with the outside world. Sound is treated as an object in which the soloist comes in contact with, developing in a generative way, reacting and evolving in its performance. The electronics are treated as the "outside" but also the inner monologue and the unconscious mind, constantly at an interplay for the audience to observe.
Instrumentation: Countertenor, electronics.
Duration: 10 min.
Written for: Hamish Gould
Commission note: Commissioned by Panoramic Music and Melbourne Composers' League, supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria
