Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The symphonic piece “Signals” consist of five sections separated by accumulative dynamic breaks and a quasi-static section, which are all in a natural interrelation. Their sequence in continuity configures a great dramatic arch. Based on a modal structure, the sound material finds its primary sources in some types of instrumental signals of melodic, harmonic and rhythmic (hence the title of the work derives) backgrounds, which gradually begin to articulate - each in itself and every other by contamination. Layering these formulas in time and space, in micro and macro generates both repetitive and progressive music, built on the principle of gradual golden section.
    The orchestral writing, of virtuosity, alternates with massive areas of transparency, helping to create a striking auditory impact, which gives the whole sound direct and subtle expression, and a note of relative accessibility. By using these ways of expression I wanted to generate an energy impact, of pulsating origin.
