Program note:
mnēmoneuein (prin khronisthēnai)
the act to remember (takes place when time has passed)

This piece is about memory. Memory as recollection, as trace; memory that reviews – memory that repeats. Two extreme forms of memory, each regarded in their pure state, but also as a transitory form, as a compound phenomenon that emanates from their amalgamation. A transition from the virtual to the actual.

But also about imagination and the border line between them. A concealed object that is brought forth by the act of remembering and by imagination.
