Terres & Nerfs (2016) for string quartet

In Terres & Nerfs, for the first time, the most significant keywords of the project were written in the peritext of the score : territoriality ; derivation ; tension ; identity ; love. You can read the geopolitical news, particularly tensed and hostile, even that violent that it should be reversibly understood through paradigms of individuality, of psycho-genealogy, of filiation of tensions : the paths of heredity and transfert through which violence gets imitated, delegated, modeled, gladly exonerated. Until that, possibly-maybe, one gets responsible, one turns back vertically (meaning no factual revenge but rather true unballasting), allowing our definite surrender to love.

 

 

The piece was premiered by the Quatuor Béla, June 8-2016, CRR, Reims (Fr)
