about

Ninety-Nine Stones is inspired by a story told by Erling Kagge in his book Silence In the Age of Noise. It is a story about ninety-nine scientists based at the South Pole who had seen nothing but snow, ice and man made objects for several months at a time. One year someone smuggled in ninety-nine stones and as a Christmas gift gave each resisdent at the base one stone. Everyone sat holding their stones in quiet reflection feeling the weight of the stone without uttering a word.

I imagined the jumble of sounds they might each individually be hearing in their heads, sounds from all around the world, where home is and where the pebble took them back to. I wanted to make them all sound at once. The solo violin part performed by my long time collaborator Marie Schreer and is my musical reaction to the story.’
