  • April 13, 2019 | 18:00

    Venue: Flat Time House, Peckham, London SE15 4BW (UK)

    Louis D'Heudieres and Annika Kahrs (evening performance)

    The event consists of Strings, a piece by Kahrs for string quartet, and a lecture-performance, it’s about time, by d’Heudieres.

    In Strings, a string quartet plays the opening page of Beethoven’s C minor op. 18 No. 4. In a dramatic progression, violins, viola and violoncello combine rising Fortissimo and quiet Staccati to a harmonic whole. This coordinated homogeneity comes to an end as the playing stops after the first melody and each musician swaps position and instrument with their neighbour to the right. With each other’s instruments, things become very different. The playing starts a balancing act between fragility and catastrophe. A tone leaps from the sequence, and seconds of silence occur between sharp and lucid dissonance. Clearly unsettled, the participants fight through the score until every player has sat in every chair.

    d’Heudieres’ new lecture-performance it's about time uses La Monte Young's Composition 1960 #10 as a springboard for considering the infinities contained within music, time and space. In addition, d’Heudieres will present a new piece developed specially for FTHo.
