Maija Hynninen

Maija Hynninen works in the areas of concert music, electronic instrument design and multidisciplinary performances. The essence of her music builds on the unique moments where the parameters of this world are slightly altered to allow a glimpse of another reality to be present. It can be a moment where the timbre of purely acoustical writing gives surprising results or when electronics project sounds into another domain, another space and reality.

The title, among other direct quotes by Burmese politician Aung San Suu Kyi, is transcribed for oboe and woven into the oboe textures. Two loudspeaker arrays – the small home-made ones on stage and the large ones placed around the audience – create two different spaces. Following the loudness of the oboe sound, each of the on-stage speakers flickers at its own pace.
