BLURB

When you are playing frisbee in the sea and it is flying toward you, you duck and suddenly find yourself underwater. Down there, it is a different world that you want to see, but instead you should try to hear it. The sounds mute fish make can be heard from hundreds of kilometers away. Whales sing and billions of fins whirl the water. It is hard to define whether it is quiet or boisterous. Sounds that we are familiar with are absent in the sea, while everything we hear here is alien to us. It is as though incomprehensible noise, because it is just as difficult to describe sounds as to describe silence. Just imagine an orchestra playing John Cage’s 4’33’’, the composition of four minutes and thirty-three seconds of complete silence in three movements, while another group of performers are playing György Ligeti’s Poème Symphonique For 100 Metronomes, in which a hundred metronomes are started simultaneously and are let wind down one after another. It is not in disharmony, neither is it disordered. It makes sense, because chaos sometimes does. It is just avant-garde. [Andras Gal]
