english: firmament - sleepless 16-channel electroacoustic composition year: 2010 duration: 20.25 min studio: Harvard University dedicated to Omar Alvarez first performance: July 29, 2010 , Festival Inventionen, Elisabethkirche, Berlin published on CD Firmament, DVD 30 Jahre Inventionen voice: Sarah SunA universe of sound is surrounding us ‘from within.’ It’s composed of our dreams, fears and longings. It only exists within our body, our own imagination. We want to share it; but there are no words, no possible descriptions. We are sitting on a meadow on a warm night, alone, watching the stars. Nobody is disturbing our thoughts. Nobody is limiting our space. We don’t have to rush anywhere; we have time to let go and to follow these sounding creatures…
It’s not a nightmare; it’s just the interplay of our imagination.
