“It is a pouring out of three individual and changing silhouettes, which has grown out of keeping specific elements and characters within the imagination. Associatively, this is darkness, air, spring, water and silhouettes as clearly expressed profiles, or gestures, the identities of which are secured by their repetition. The behaviour of incorporeal, bodiless sound beings changes every time they appear. In this composition I hear a certain current, or flow, that emerges when one is far from home.
“This work is my experiment in creating a corporeity of music, which is something I strive for in other compositions as well. My ideal is music that, when it is listened to, one loses the ability to distinguish separate parameters; they are located so close to each other that the audible result is something alive, organic and plastic. One of the specific features of musical gesture is that the listener does not need to hear it; that is, the gesture affects the subconsciousness. It’s as if the body feels something familiar, but it might not be doing so on a conscious level. The gesture is inseparably linked with the concept of movement.”
Leimane’s final suggestion for the listener:
“Listen, and at the same time do not listen – so that the gestures inscribe their own contours on your perception.” Text by Dāvis Eņģelis
