"In Double Bind?
, my desire is to offer, on the one hand, a glimpse of the inner life of sounds and, on the other hand, a fantasized, manipulated and altered view of the relationship between musician and instrument as well as life 'in the wings' of a musician.
As in my preceding work for live instruments and electronics, I have taken an interest here in the playful jumble of the limits between the 'real' and the 'artificial'.” - Unsuk Chin
Double Bind? for solo violin and electronics was premiered on 2 December 2007at the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord in Paris by Hae-Sun Kang, for whom the work was written. The live electronics were designed by Benoit Meudic at IRCAM.
