About

No other work marks the change and development driven nature of Czernowin's work as do the Wintersongs. The first Wintersong was written in 2002 and the last in 2014, right after HIDDEN, which marks the outward cusp of the evolution in Czernowin's work. While the existential and elemental quality of the music are intensely present as before, the engagement with the slower and more temporal perception reveals an immersive quality. The music becomes an experience where rapture and continuity are shaping the sound as if it were living matter, while creating opening and closing spaces inside the structure.
