| ' strings ' - Emmanuel Witzthum
||String trio was composed as a set of variations to the song “Mama Yo No Tengo Visto” which is a 16th century Jewish ladino melody. In Hebrew the song is called “calmness”. In writing the work I deconstructed the song by separating the tones of the melody and what the melody was “meant” to convey metaphorically. With the tones I created a series of horizontal and vertical alternate melodies and sets which relate to one another in fields, with the “metaphorical” meaning I attempted to express a process of calming down. The work itself is devoid of rhythm, as such it focuses not on the act of “performing” the tone but on the space between the tones, in the silence that is borne out of the tones intent or potential. In addition the tones do not have articulation or dynamic markings so as to allow the performers as much flexibility for creativity and expression as possible. Without rhythm the piece does not have a fixed duration (as demonstrated by the durations of the two performances on this release), nor do the performers have to adhere to a fixed metronome. They instead should lead and follow, they should be capable to return to an essence of chamber music which I feel is lost in our times, of creating together, of a whole created by it parts, each time different, each time unique, each time without original. Without articulation or dynamics, the tones are equal, the performers decide how to play their tones while the score offers them only a framework within which their interpretations can be expressed. It is my hope with this release that musicians will take the score which is added to the LP and create their own renditions and interpretations of the piece be they acoustic or electronic. This release is a blueprint, an invitation to share and communicate -so too is the score.

||Relatively normal actions on three stringed instruments are radically and exaggeratedly slowed down. The normal wavering in an ordinary bow stroke is magnified at this glacial tempo, and we are able to perceive characteristics and capabilities of the instruments ordinarily unheard.
