Malcolm Goldstein
Configurations in Darkness (excerpt in realaudio)
An improvisation on a folksong that was recorded in Gacko, Bosnia-Herzogovina as sung by Halima Hvre in 1935, and later transcribed by Bela Bartok as an exile in New York City in the 1940s. It is one of several such songs incorporated into the ensemble composition, ‘ Configurations in Darkness’, composed in 1995; the music as a kind of landscape of sound from which solo song evolves, ‘… discovered as something that re-emerges from where it lay buried in the memory, inaudible as a melody cut in a disc of flesh’ (Jean Genet; ‘Prisoner of Love’). This performance is an improvisation from the larger ensemble piece and, as the original, offered as a gesture of hope for the endurance of peace in Bosnia-Herzogovina (as elsewhere, endlessly).
