step,under is an exploration of the polyphony
and heterophony of time.
What do I mean. Time is multiple. And not just because it is passing
in a certain way now and will pass differently tomorrow (Bergson). Time
is always already passing differently, time is always already other –
non-identical, differing from itself. And music cuts it open like a knife,
passing into its organs, arriving at its tiniest particles – shimmering,
vibrating, shifting – flying along rapidly and motionless...
