Tableaux du son (2017)
When watching Tableaux du son, the listener is given the choice of remaining within a state of potentiality (watching the video WITHOUT sound and imagining the sound by reading the description of the piece) or to make the transition into actuality (watching the video WITH sound).
IMPORTANT: TURN OFF THE COMPUTER SPEAKERS BEFORE PRESSING PLAY.
If you decide to turn up the sound - then it should be loud and you should listen with the use of good headphones.
Tableaux du son is a piece for 6 violins performing a major third with the duration of 15 minutes. Even though it´s just a major third, the sound of the 6 violins go in and out of phase thereby causing the character of the major third to change in a microcosmos of constant drama.
