AVATAR DVADAS PART II

Date : 18 October 2009
Location:

The second episode, inspired by the constellation LIBRA, is all about Cosmic Balance, Ma’at, as the ancient Egyptians called it. In Thai classical music, music is supposed to sustain a balance between four different modes: ‘diid, sii, tii, pao’ – ‘plucking, bowing, hitting and blowing.’ The Second Avatar pits these four traditional techniques against four ‘alternate’ sound producing techniques ‘treading, digging, shaking and sweeping.’ The two systems of sonority are played against each other to provide new ideas of balance and order.
