The City Wears Nothing

Ana María Bermúdez

Cover for the score of composer Niki Harlafti's 2017 piece, "The City Wears Nothing".  She writes:

"The piece itself was inspired by the distant, echoing sounds of Boston in the even stillness, as I experienced them through my fifth-floor apartment window, facing a brick highlight. Through chordal oscillations, between struggle and mediation, constant and often indiscernible timbral shifts, beatings, consonance and dissonance in waves of unpredictability and persistence, the city insists on its loneliness. It is painted soft and loud; it is here and nowhere. It sounds red, white, black, grey, and naked. It is exposed to everything and nothing."
