I find Good Friday through to Holy Saturday such a sacred space of time, time that is, disorientating, mixed with a sense of anger, loss of Hope, meaningless, fatigued bodies and souls, frightening, Words of soulful lament, tears of sorrow.
We seem to skip Holy Saturday, we find it too difficult the silence from the cross, the sense of all this being some kind of trick.
As someone with mental health issues. this time feels like how I feel a lot of the time, I’d like to find a way of forming/birthing some kind of music to sum this up.
My idea is this, the piece starts as a distorting fractured sound which builds up, maybe with some static noise then cascades down into the closing last few minutes which would reorientate into a sample of either silent night or little town of Bethlehem, this announcing glimpse of resurrection hope, of gathering up the fractured and re-membering them back into wholeness.
I’ve had this idea for a few years now, I can’t play any instruments, I have no clue as to how to put this together, therefore I wondered if you might be able to help.
