For Robert Hooke

Drawing from organic patterns found in nature and ‘just intonation’ tuning, delicately woven fibers intertwine, creating organic cells that multiply, suspended in space. The natural harmonic sounds of the Long String Instrument combined with the soft, flowing cells, engage an evocative conversation that creates an emotional experience within our internal and collective nature.

Anaya, Fullman, and Talambas intertwine their respective mediums to compose a work that evokes our internal and collective rhythmic nature. Corporal cells of delicately interwoven fibers are suspended above a fluid performance pairing Ellen Fullman’s Long String Instrument with a DSO chamber ensemble, creating an immersive web of dissonant light and consonant shadow.
