In the Courtyard
percussion & electronics
It is a place where the desire to speak, and eventually your thoughts, disappear. 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 - is a 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, and becoming one.
