Notes

  • Program notes: 

    TREES CRY TOO (2014) is a musical reflection on the meaning and sounding of the sensory world of trees that is not so very different from humans. It calls us to a state of mindfulness, where we become better in tune with and more compassionate towards our surroundings. In abstract terms, it is concerned with how trees respond and make their own sounds. Musical materials, employing spectral resonance of colors and textures, move the piece in a free style which draws timbre as an important element of structure. The composer’s musical ideas have found their form in a variety of kaleidoscopic set of textural variations. After changing a lot, we suddenly hear the same musical gestures as they were in the beginning: the piece has come full circle. Doğuduyal describes her work as a synthesis of non-western scales (that create a heterophonic effect) and new compositional techniques (in timbral structures integrating microtonality).
