Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The idea of circulation as a mechanism that drives the generation of sonic material and the formation of its identity (rhythm, articulation, pitch material, texture, etc.) is an approach that has been the focus of my creative work for the last two years.
    The cyclic circulation and permutation of interrelated elements creates sonic material that is static while at the same time being in a constant process of transformation. Researching the empathy towards the musical material created in this process is of key significance to me as an artist. The orchestra, as a comp lex sonic body offering a rich palette of timbral and textural combinations between the various instrumental sections, is certainly a great inspiration in this regard!

    For the point of departure ofthe composition Cancro, 1 used the "flux" or musical flow that is released by an outburst of the entire orchestral body and is based on the intensive rhythmic pulsing of the wind and the brass. 1 wanted to create a long, unbroken dramaturgical are from the initial aggressive impulse all the way to the concluding section ofthe composition, when the sound is gradually reduced to mere noises and individual solo interjections before finally dying out aitogether.
