And if you would ask me for a statement to composing, to my composing – I would answer: listening becomes the awareness of fading sound.

Fading sound is the link between life and art; between perception in daily life and perception while performing, while composing.

And the awareness of fading sound may become the awareness of presence.

-Eva-Maria Houben

‘lines and tracings’ places the transparent among the obscure. The piece uses as its basis the idea that we are creating our own wander lines while also tracing over the lines of others. It is an exploration of infinite potential within the means we have been given. Sound becomes our language to create an architecture of being together.
