Four composers present recent works that actualize the potentials of place and time in long-term if not life-time projects.

Music reflects the strata of cultural history in a conceptually condensed way. We always find the strategy of layering, which enables us to encounter the folded world in a certain and at the same time indeterminate way. This seems to be of importance: The precision with which the indeterminacy of each layer is attempted to be rendered. In the strata of cultural history, we never know exactly what is going on and where we find ourselves, they are impenetrable, but in some places, as infinitely gliding lines without points, we sense that we can interact, traversing and touching the impenetrable in certain ways. These are the moments in which ideas arise, ideas about the world that gain consistency in the immediate contact with the things of the world. This potentiality comes sometimes much closer to being violently shaken, in everyday survival anyway, and also in the arts as there is no escaping from the abyss of ambivalence. If we want to work on real ideas about the world, we cannot avoid radically surrendering to this gliding in the impenetrable layers of the world: Infinitely traversing the thresholds.
