radia #217: 18 Minutes
contributed by Kevin Malone for klubradio, Berlin
Klubradio presents the work of music and sound designer Kevin Malone. In this series, Malone presents Fast Forward, 18 Minutes and Changing For You. Fast Forward, a string quartet of obsession and velocity leads into 18 Minutes, a concerto for two double basses and string orchestra. 18 minutes is the amount of time that elapsed between the collisions of the World Trade Center towers in New York City on September 11th, 2001. The voices heard on this piece provide the pitches and rhythms of the melodies. They are the spontaneous exclamations of people who witnessed the collisions.
