Blurring Definitions defines the conclusive stage of a musical debate portrayed in a trilogy (2008-2016) that includes Hypothesis, for solo percussion and Antithesis, for quartet. Between the prologue and epilogue of this final discourse, the three central statements – afterimage, mirage and aurae – are triggered respectively by the first violin, the flute and the cello, and interconnected by two short reflections for percussion. Imaginably, concealed eloquence as transcending perception.

The world premiere of Blurring definitions took place at the ORF Landesfunkhaus Dorbirn in Bregenz, Austria, on 6th November 2016 and was performed by the Ensemble Plus.
