ere (2016)
for five violins

Keiko Devau’s ere paints an aural picture of shifting textures made from a palette of intricate extended violin techniques, most of which are produced by creating extremely high frequencies through a string technique called harmonics (where only partials of the strings' natural sound envelope are produced). The result is a sort of "reverse" sound-world, where an infrequent "normally" produced violin sound creates a special moment, sounding almost out of place in this new sonic universe.
