Dust is a piece composed by the Swiss artist Antoine Chessex.
A slow meta-physical progression, the junction of tense violins and a revoxian dust, juxtaposing, overlapping, resorbing and accompanying each other, before exploding in a powerful final catharsis.
Like a proposal for departure towards infinity, a before-after Big Bang, highly successful, disturbing at times as is the vast unknown… the music of a ship leaving for the limits of the cosmos perhaps, in any case it can resonate like that to our simple earthly ears.
A superb piece, skilfully orchestrated and powerfully realised by performers completely at ease with themselves…
