D for 887
As in our identity, as in relationships, as in life, choreographic structures are formed by way of memory.
“The memories brought forth, inherent in the musical material, also form a relationship to the memory of the place of production. In this sense musical material pre-exists, as it forms a dialogue with the material conditions of its production, the composer re-collecting this
material within the compositional process.”
- Daniel Peter Biro, Remembering and Forgetting
