SUS: the long thin wire (2015)
Composer: Christopher Preissing; with Carrie Frey, viola; Myra Hinrichs, violin; Lia Kohl, cello
SUS: the long thin wire is a performance-installation for suspended string trio, long tuned wires and piano resonator. Short for SUStain – to support or bear up from below; SUSpend – to hang by attachment from above; and SUSpension – musically, one note or harmony is sustained while another changes, SUS places the spectator, not to mention the performers, in the precarious position of ascent and descent.
