iKKi Duo’s album “Nine Stages of Not Arriving” is a duo comprovisation project with cello, objects, piano and electronics. The duo uses contemporary playing techniques with objects, and explores various sound-fields of timbre, texture, gesture, rhythm, sound, silence, pitch and noise. The album comprises nine miniatures, making a playful allusion to the suite form. Instead of setting up to arrive at places, the miniatures explore sounds ‘in moments’. Each moment is a situation, where the duo responds with and through their bodies and the relation-scape they inhabit. The title of the pieces give clues to the sound acts and gestures that are being realized. The form playfully invites listeners to listen to the miniatures as individual singular pieces, as well as entangled with others, as a unified whole.
