The Wire – Video: Annea Lockwood & Yarn/Wire „Into The Vanishing Point“

Das New Yorker Schlagzeug- und Klavierquartett Yarn/Wire arbeitet gemeinsam mit dem Komponisten Lockwood an einem Werk, das auf den Zusammenbruch der Insektenpopulationen reagiert.

Tonband and Becoming Air/Into the Vanishing Point represent two vastly different ways of making music for Yarn/Wire,” remarks percussionist Russell Greenberg about the quartet’s two new albums. Tonband features Enno Poppe and Wolfgang Heiniger’s composition exploring traditional chamber music, while Annea Lockwood’s Becoming Air/Into the Vanishing Point recontextualises the performer/composer relationship via oral tradition.

This video of Into The Vanishing Point is performed by Yarn/Wire percussionists Ian Antonio and Russell Greenberg and pianists Laura Barger and Ning Yu. Conceived in reply to a report about the collapse of insect populations, composer and sound artist Lockwood mapped out a “loose structure” for the performers, which would allow them to explore their “feelings about what is happening ecologically”.

Tonband and Becoming Air/Into the Vanishing Point are released by Wergo and Black Truffle respectively on 10 September.
