The video projection in this piece is ‘… and he fell instantly’ that was made for an exhibition in Bruges,
Belgium, commemorating the First World War. The original video is about the subjective experience of
time and is intended to loop indefinitely. It plays with how we measure time with markers - seconds,
hours, years - but how the intervals seem to expand and contract, how events from 100 years ago can
suddenly find an echo in the present.
For this concert with the composer's collective Monotak I wrote a score for the ensemble Looptail,
that weaves through the original structure of the video loop.
