KRIDT CHALK)

 
 
KRIDT by Tim Rushton
 
 
While hearing the sound of someone scratching writings on a wall, a man lies on the floor preparing himself to meet his fate. Eyes meet. The body’s memory takes over the story. Tim Rushton had two sources of inspiration creating Kridt. Firstly, a text from the Bible as the thematic pivotal point: ‘To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven’ (Ecclesiastes, 3,1.) Secondly, Musica Adventus, the suite for strings by Latvian composer Peteris Vasks. The music takes its starting point in the epistle on the Christmas message – Peace on Earth.
