Planting trees out of the grief
In Memoriam Robert Creeley
It was during a concert of the Bostonian Dinosaur Annex Music ensemble and I was amongst many others, a part of the event: classical music in dialogue with multi-medial elements. Video on screen and electronic sound beating out off the loudspeakers. "Bokeh," "Traces" with six gestures, "The Law of Floating Objects" (it was about infinity) and Martin Bresnick's "My Twentieth Century" really touched me. Like so often, it happened because of words. Words, talking to me. Words, speaking me.
