Programme Note:

at the fissures is grounded in liminality and the idea of a rite of passage. The piece involves constant efforts to reach a sense of stability, and each time it seems to be attained, something of a different nature or scope emerges and dismantles it. The piece seeks to go beyond the western-habituated notion of stability and, in a way, returns to something more basal – it invites an astute listening to sound over time in order to appreciate the subtle interactions and emergent processes that occur within it.  – Yon Chekhanovich
