Orphax – Sietse van Erve
September 2022 I had a short tour in the UK with a couple of performances. One of them was at the beautiful venue Cube Cinema in Bristol during the Echoic Memory evening with Scanner.
For this performance, I composed a new work, in which I further explore the perception of time. It follows much in the line of my previous works Embraced Imperfections and Less Is More. Not only because of the live performance, but also in atmosphere and mood. Yet, at the same time is even more dreamy, and as such fitting with the theme of the Echoic Memory evening.
I often have various recurring dreams. Each time these dreams occur, I wake up as if I had a strange memory of something that really happened years ago, or something that could happen in the (near) future. Yet, it always stays with these dreams.
This live composition represents that feeling for me.
