Anti I 2003
Created politically from the, in the anger at the emergent crime of the Iraq war. The first meaning of the title in this respect. The second meaning relates to the musical matter of the first two parts of this piece: groups of sounds that knock against each other, being drawn into ever changing force fields. And the third meaning refers to the character of Antigone, who, with respect to the passed brothers, takes the regrettably otherwordly stance (logic, moral): no brother is worth less, when he is on the wrong side of the state.
Anti I is the first, self-contained part to Anti II which is written for the same instruments plus three speakers.
Christian Hommel, oboe; Harrie Starreveld, flute; Letizia Viola, bassoon
