Our work is set to Stockhausen’s Adieu, a wind quintet he created after the death of a friend’s young child. Inspired by the strict composition of paintings by Piet Mondrian, Stockhausen’s score is based on the Fibonacci sequence. ‘Adieu’ is a reflection on the transience of experience, the order of nature and the beauty of innocence.
Thick & Tight and Corali will transport you to a place that exists between a nuclear garden, a flowering sea and a primary-coloured dream.
