Can color be depicted in sound? That’s what Melissa Hui attempts to do in Inner Voices. She presents “color fields” of instrumental timbres which sit side by side, rub and interact in various ways – the analogous procedure in abstract painting where planes of color interact on a flat surface. The “inner voices” of the title refer to “intertwining lines within the color fields,” as Hui explains. “The variation of rhythm and/or instrumental color of these lines add richness to the texture and makes the color vibrate with subtle nuances of the same hue.”
