For Anton Lukoszevieze. Recording devices – wax cylinder, tape and disc, for example – are used to make real-time recordings during the performance. It’s a piece which unrolls its own history so that it begins ‘finished’ and then reveals its components – bowing patterns, bowing rhythms, double-stop combinations, left-hand positions – but it’s also a piece about trying to remember an idea; the recordings a reminder of that first thought which can’t quite be recaptured. There’s a short BBC film about the piece.
