En Présence de l’Absence attempts to throw new light on Edward Saïd’s intellectual cosmos, bringing out its essence through this new musical creation. Interweaved with exclusive and previously unreleased recordings of his own piano recitals, the work of Lebanese violinist Layale Chaker is intended as a poignant reflection on heritage and loss. Brief audio extracts of Saïd’s speeches, conferences and piano recitals are interspersed with music, highlighting the fluent links between methodical thought and the ineffability of music.
