“… the source of fear is in the future, and a person freed of the future has nothing to fear” —Milan Kundera, Slowness (La lenteur)
At 45 degrees in the shade, in the middle of an ocean of sand, one’s ego dissolve: the boundary between oneself, the others, the world, disappears, and only then is made possible the mid-summer night dream (nightmare?), static in its perpetual motion.
For Ever Now Soon an End was realized in 2010 at the Elektronisches Studios of the Fachgebiet Audiokommunikation of the Technische Universität Berlin (Germany) and at the composer’s studio and premiered on January 21, 2011 during the Das Elektronische Studio der TU Berlin concert as part of the Ultraschall festival at Radialsystem V (Berlin, Germany). The piece was commissioned by Technische Universität Berlin. For their support, thanks to Folkmar Hein, Andre Bartetzki, Volker Straebel, and Wilm Thoben. This version was mastered in June 2011 by Dominique Bassal in Montréal.
