Rhodri Davies Wound Response
Rhodri Davies Transversal Time World Premiere (Co-commissioned by hcmf//, Counterflows & Chapter)

Drawn from across the musical spectrum, Davies has put together an exceptional international line-up to perform his most ambitious creation to date. Transversal Time is inspired by Davies’ childhood spent surrounded by watches and clocks all stating different times (his father and grandfather repaired and sold watches), and takes as its starting point different time systems, including Standard Time, Decimal Time, and Hex Time. The piece draws upon the writings of Francois Jullien, in particular his book In praise of Blandness: Proceeding from Chinese Thought and Aesthetics, exploring the ancient Chinese notion of the richness of a bland sound; a bland meaning; a bland painting; a bland poem.

Produced by hcmf// supported by PRS for Music Foundation Beyond Borders
