Salix (2020)

"Salix" is based upon a short acoustic observation of branches and leaves of a very old specimen of a "Salix Alba Tristis" from the willow family (Salicaceae), which were moved slightly by an emerging wind. These movements, which grasp trunk, branches and the dense foliage in different ways, just like the life-giving and increasingly scarce water in them become sound gestures and textures.

The structural nature of these sounds leads to spectral and temporal variations, which are developed in the course of the piece using the means of the electronic studio. Formal proportions become clear in the use intervals of distinctive sounds in accordance with the golden ratio.

Not only this mighty tree, but also all other animate beings in nature and the earth that supports them, need more carethan ever before now and in the future.
