Fern

Jo Kondo

Fern has been performed in Aarau, Berlin, Borås, Montréal and Tokyo…

This piece consists of juxtapositions of many short sections. One of my purposes in this composition was to line-up these short sections (or, fragments) of different characteristics in order to create a “static” form, i.e., an overall form which does not involve any goal-oriented directionality.

Fern was written in 1990 and premiered the same year in a concert at the Tokyo Summer Festival by the English group, Balanescu Quartet.
