“I could compare my music to white light, which contains all colours. Only a prism can divide and make them appear; this prism could be the spirit of the listener.”
Famous words by the world’s most performed contemporary composer Arvo Pärt which have been the inspiration for the specially conceived installation for the V&A’s Norfolk House Music Room. The ‘Memory & Light’ installation is curated by Clare Farrow and Eva Woode and a collaboration with Arup’s design team and will present a “viewing and listening bench”, together with Pärt’s famous tintinnabuli-style musical works “Spiegel im Spiegel” (Mirror in the Mirror) and “Für Alina”.
