Repetition invites us to focus on details that usually fly by. It draws our attention to the “grain of the sound”, so we observe minute deviation and extremely slow change, or fall into a trance-like state. This programme explores different approaches to repetition in music. Although none of the music is literally repetitive, these diverse works share common interests, in creating music out of an extreme economy of means and opening up different kinds of listening environments.
