About the piece

Quinθ is a piece that offers different insights into the notions of synchronicity and asynchronicity, by way of isolating meter and instrumental parts. If chamber music represents the ‘eye’ of synergy, during the interpretation of the piece the performers can add to their technical range with their intellection of the synchronicity of breathing of pores on the tips of their fingers – and this also translates onto the music parameters.
