"The Buffer Zone is an audio-visual work that explores boundaries of separation. The work is inspired by the UN Buffer Zone in Cyprus that runs across the island and divides the two communities. In the performance the audience and the space is split into two halves by hanging video screens. On each side there is a musician (piano and cello) who play imaginary duets with a virtual instrument on the other side. The central character is a UN soldier (singer/actor) who guards the buffer zone and freely crosses from side to side. The sound world of the work consists of UN interviews, nature field recordings in the buffer zone, electronic sounds of military technology, piano, cello and voices , from straight to highly processed. Commissioned and premiered at the Festival aan de Werf in May 2004."-Subterranean
