Fishbones (2007)

Program notes

"The sounds that glide through the air carry a certain nostalgia, solitude, anxiety... they sound like human voice! The submerged percussion instruments drown us in an aquatic sonority that crescendo becomes a metallic roar. The cynic idea of fishy life cycle came to me while I was sophisticating this piece, a life that begins with an egg hatching in the ocean freely to end up in a form of pressurized canned food." - O. Adamek
