Player I - IV: One Vibraphone

Program Notes

Being close to someone can mean agreeing not to see parts of them, and in some sense Blindnesses is about the absences that this mutual understanding contains. Four vibraphonists perform a delicate choreography that requires each performer to be intimately, meticulously aware of the actions of the other players around them. The vibraphone techniques used, incorporating pitch bending and envelope shaping through bowing, borrow from the language of audio synthesis. Meanwhile, the electronic accompaniment, at times barely present, other times aggressively glitchy, reflects back distorted shards and discarded fragments of the live performance’s musical material.[1]
