Works by Greta Eacott published by Edition·S

We are very happy to announce the beginning of a new collaboration with Greta Eacott - a British percussionist and composer living on the island of Morsø in Denmark.

In her compositions, she works with simplistic, structured forms in combination with elements of indeterminacy and a minimalistic approach to material that heightens the relationships between sound and silence, movement and stillness, texture and space.

Greta Eacott’s primary focus is composing live performance works for large and small instrumental ensembles; working with both people with no experience performing music, as well as for instrumentalists at the highest professional level.

Her ‘sans disciplinary’ approach to music composition is rooted in an explorative interest in ‘Ma’, the Japanese aesthetic concept of negative space. ‘Ma’ expresses a pause in time, an interval or emptiness in space that makes way for growth and reflection. In music ‘Ma’ is found in Noh Theatre, the classical Japanese dancedrama that demonstrates a delicate balance between object and space, sound and silence, movement and rest.
