"Focus" concentrates on the behavior of sound in space. The Sonemus Trio wants to achieve a focus on listening: a contemplation, away from visual distraction, towards a deeper listening experience. The pieces selected are quite different in character. On the one hand, works that work with the element of silence, on the other hand, highly explosive pieces that are characterized by a high density of sound.
The new piece by Helga Arias, commissioned by the Sonemus Trio, is about structures created with the help of silence and about communication. Helga Arias writes about it:
"Silence is one of the most fragile qualities of music and yet one of the most powerful, because it can create relaxation and tension in both the audience and the performer. The concept of this piece is to articulate interactions between the three musicians around an intimate and personal concept of silence that transcends the behavior of the group as an ensemble.
