Abstract

Genre: Avant Garde: Electro-Acoustic
Monty Adkins composed Between Lines (2009) during an arts residency program at Zentrum fur Kunst und Medientechnologie, in Germany. According to a small plate on the outside wall, the wonderful building that currently houses this institute was once used as a forced-labor ammunition factory during World War II. Crossing the building itself, there are two pieces of wood marking the original railways that were used to transport raw materials across the factory. From a certain viewpoint, one can see the entire 300 meter-wide building end to end, and can only but imagine the despair and loneliness of former factory workers. The sound universe of this piece is framed not only by electronics and the instrument, but also by dark resonances that seek to recreate the atmosphere that most likely prevailed within this space in times of war.
