With the words “what a gently welcoming darkestness”, E.E. Cummings hails the darkness in his poem “Now I lay(with everywhere around)”. In the new piece “Now I Lay Me Down” of director Sabrina Hölzer and Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop this darkness holds a special listening experience. Where light ends and visual boundaries dissolve in darkness, sound becomes space and music becomes vicinity. In poise between sleep and awakening, bodies morph into instruments and sounds into architecture. Outer and inner space, fuse in drifting and recursive topographies of music and motion. Freed from visual stimuli, the listener becomes part of a musical body, originating his own dreams.
