Hugh Livingston
In his string quartet installation, Hugh Livingston presents the visitor with two unusual experiences. First, the feeling of a string instrument's fundamental resonances, radiating through the chair into the body. Second, the visceral nature of the counterpoint between the intertwined individual voices of a string quartet. By placing the visitor experience at the center of that interchange, rather than at the distance typical of a concert hall, a new insight is offered into the essence of chamber composition. The voices of the string quartet are in fact all cello, recorded by the composer. There are canons and inversions and call-and-response, mimicking the easy intimacy of the social nature of a quartet, and inviting the listener to share in that experience. The installation developed for Caramoor draws on materials from Shostakovich's Ninth String Quartet, tying to the summer's performance by the Escher String Quartet.
