Stabile was named after Calder's monumental outdoor sculptures which, paradoxically, bring opposites together: the heavy and the light, the stationary and the mobile. It also deals with the imbalance required to maintain the equilibrium of a constantly moving entity when all of its elements are in constant (though at times almost undetectable) interplay with one another.
Commissioned by Quasar, Stabile was premiered in January 2003 as part of the Electrochocs concert.
