Enclosure

Description

Enclosure (2018) is an electroacoustic piece that functions as a 'memoryscape'. The characteristic introductory theme of the cello is transforming throughout the work as a block of material that is being carved. This notion of transformation represents a torsion of the memory through the hypnotic sound, which remains always present as if it has been enclosed, captured. Enclosure expresses the haunting feeling of a memory that regenerates itself in different ways each time it gets triggered, as if one is visiting the ruins of a city where past life can be sensed but may not always be visible.
