The new piece Tombe de sommeil, which was commissioned from José-María Sánchez-Verdú y Uusinta Ensemble and Petri Kumela, examines the relationship between sound and space with the help of a virtual guitar and auraphon developed in SWR Experimental Studio in Freiburg. The playing of the guitar soloist is projected onto the ‘unmanned’ guitar as well as other instruments, and the result is a work that falls somewhere between installation and chamber music.
