Act I: Chaos
Disruption is my friend! Disorder and chaos interest me. Especially activities that appear to have no meaning. To me, that means freedom.
Act II: The Intangible Monster
The monster of disruption is intangible. Before you know it, the monster will consume, distort, penetrate and change everything. When that happens, we are left completely vulnerable.
Act III: Metamorphosis
Disruptive change, does not have to be outward. I find the butterfly’s metamorphosis peculiar: An introspective re-construction, that results in a completely unrecognisable creature.
Act IV: New Harmony
“The music of a lunatic”: this was the public’s reaction to the Razumovsky’s quartet. If ever a work expressed triumph over tragedy whilst marking a decisive advance on its own time, it is the Quartet in C major, in the manuscript of which Beethoven admitted for the first time publicly that he was deaf, he wrote, “Henceforth, make no secret of your deafness, even in your art.”
