Pierre-Yves Martel: Estinto — Australia 2019

Estinto is characterized by slow music, extended in time and riven by isolated events in a frame of silence. Through restraint, observation and control, the interplay of viola da gamba and harmonica opens a space wherein each instrument can extinguish itself and finally blend into a single unearthly soundscape.

Like a painter working at the intersection of shadow and light, Pierre-Yves Martel gives voice to silence in a subtle play in which every intervention draws, in ghostly lines, the contours of a sonic architecture that is both distinct and enigmatic. The constancy with which Pierre-Yves Martel explores a single idea in order to give form to empty space make this work a fascinating exploration of spatiality and time, and an invitation to reflect.
