In the Courtyard
It is a place where the desire to speak, and eventually your thoughts, disappears. Unconsciously, you become a part of everything. The courtyard consists of three different sizes, pentagonal areas connected to each other, in the middle of which - chapel dedicated to St. Sophrony the Athonite. When you lift your head up, you see a sky framed by the edges of the walls, four bells hanging in one of the corners...
This piece for percussion, is a reflection of the feeling of being there - the light beats of four instruments sounding at three different tempos and meters come together, losing their individuality, becoming one.
