Commentary

Obscure

The piece is based on the word 'obscure'. It aims at taking the word literally and transforming its sound, appearance and impression. The presentation of the word 'obscure' goes from the unequivocal reality to an obscured, slightly uneasy and gloomy state.

The word becomes gradually obscured and then is entirely lost. Its abstract image - and associated meaning - is replaced by sonic material and the focus changes. The selected word is prolonged and introduces sustained sounds; each letter is transformed into a distinct timbre. Various sounds, all derived from the word, are intersected in the continuum. Gradually, the extended word 'obscure' fades out and the piece ends.
