“Two realities defined by their own characteristics, unfolding in different ways. We exist in one, but can experience the other in brief moments. A door opens and we see it, then it closes. It opens again, and again, but never for too long. We can feel it, yes, but we cannot comprehend it fully. We do not belong there. Or do we?”
Sans ralentir explores the issue of parallel realities using some measures of Debussy’s String Quartet in G Major to define one of those realities. The piece is both a sort of homage to Debussy and a reaction to the audiences that could not go past Debussy when it comes to appreciating “contemporary” music.
